It is another busy weekend as the Optimist Club of Quincy will be holding the 15th Annual Quincy Derby this Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 at Bob Mays Park in Quincy.

On Friday the "Super Kids Derby" will be held for kids with special needs beginning at 10 a.m. and then on Saturday the main "Derby" will be held beginning at 8 a.m.

Meanwhile, Y101 Radio has a car entered once again and has had one in all 15 years of this event, but we have not had a winner yet.  Perhaps that win will come this year when 7 year old Boston Reno gets behind the wheel Saturday. Boston won a contest on Y101 to have the opportunity to drive our car. Good luck to Boston and all the drivers this weekend!

There are plenty of places along North 18th Street to view the races so bring your lawn chairs and blankets and make a day of it. There will also be with food and drink available as well.
