2011 Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby

Cruz Ortiz, creative mastermind behind the event, hopes his public art intervention will continue to strengthen the East Side community and show other San Antonians that this part of the city is a dynamic and safe place to live and play.

“I designed this relationship between crazy pushcarts and community cultivation as a creative way to stimulate the rebuilding of urban decay," said Ortiz. "Art is the interactive bond and its success is reflected through the yearly increase in pushcart teams and Derby attendance. So, put your good chanklas on, bring the suegra y los kids and let the races begin!”

The event is free and concessions are available. More info about the Derby can be found on the Facebook event page and the Derby supporters' Facebook page.

Here are our photos from last year's event.

Dignowity Park is located on the corner of N. Hackberry and Nolan St.
