driving directly into the kerb not recommendedThe Island Bay Festival wraps up this weekend with one of the highlights being the Ribble Street Trolley Derby on Saturday afternoon.

The Trolley WOF’s have already been sorted, so you’re too late if you want to join in the racing, but there’s plenty of danger and excitement to be had even just being a spectator (witness the Otago races last week), as young racers – protected with only a helmet, fledgling driving skills and a prayer – will be hurtling down Ribble Street at speeds of up to 50k.

Also check out other Festival events happening over Saturday and Sunday, and remember that the Karori Festival is also taking place this Sunday, at Ben Burn Park from 10am.
