Join us and plaster your family and friends in a kaleidoscope of color. The Color Splash is a free activity within the Spring Into QC event and is open to all ages. 

Sign-ups for the Color Splash will take place on site. The Color Splash will take place within the designated Color Zone. Upon sign-up, you will be given a ticket with your designated time slot. We ask that you arrive at the Color Zone 10-15 minutes before your designated time slot, where you will receive two color packets. Upon receiving your color packet, you may then enter the Color Zone.

Pinewood Derby  scouts


Come out and show off your skills at the inaugural Lego Derby and Pinewood Derby sponsored by Desert Wells District Boy Scouts of America. There is no fee to race in either event, however, Pinewood Derby Racers do have specific requirements which are listed under the Pinewood Derby section. Feel free to compete in one or both of the Derby’s. There are two ways to take part in the fun!

Lego Derby

Come to the Lego build tables and use the provided Lego's to build your dream race car and watch it race down the track against other fellow master Lego builders. Each participant will be given five (5) minutes to build their car and then watch it race down the track. After your race is over, feel free to go back to the build tables and build another one as the race team tears apart your Lego car and gets it ready for another builder to create their masterpiece. You can build a car and race in the Lego race as many times as you wish. There is no age requirement. No pre-registration is required. Come out and have fun building and racing!

Pinewood Derby

Build your very own Pinewood Derby car at home and bring it to race. See how much fun it is to build and race, which is only one of the many FUN things you can do as a cub scout. To take part in this option, attendees can purchase an official BSA derby kit from Michael’s, Lowe’s or the Mesa Scout Shop (off Dobson Rd.) and then build the fastest and most stylish car out there. Maybe you have an old Pinewood Derby Car at home, we invite you to bring it to race. Rules are listed at the registration link below and Pinewood Derby race participants must abide by all the regulations in order to race in the Pinewood Derby races. Race against everyone to see how you do.

All non-scouters/community participants will race in the Outlaw class. Online registration required to race in the Pinewood Derby Race as the number of participants are limited due to the event length. No matter which way you choose to race, stop by the Desert Wells District Boy Scouts of America booth to find out more about scouting in your community or visit beascout.scouting.org or Grand Canyon Council Boy Scouts to join. Scouting is open for boys 5-20 and girls 14-20.
