Carnival is fun for all ages and this event is for the young ones, the really young ones. The Toddler Derby is a race for children. Watch toddlers on all four crawl to the finish line, or not. Some sit at the starting line as their parents try their hardest to coax the toddler down the mat. Older children, up to 7 years old, race each other, sprinting across the short course. Fun family event. During the Doll contest parents dress their young children up in creative costumes with Carnival themes, of animals, fantasy and other characters.
