Babies Dash to Finish Line in Diaper Derby

Watsonville, CA -- The 2022 Diaper Derby is in the books! It was an intense race with nearly a dozen babies battling it out to be the fastest crawler at the Fair. There were lots of laughs (and a few tears) as the babies inched and scooted their way to the finish line- some taking breaks along the way. Family members and a packed audience cheered them on along the way.

But, in the end, only one baby can take home the blue ribbon.

This year’s winner is 14-month-old Charles Rucker of Aromas.

We want to thank Fair Board of Directors member, Loretta Estrada, and her devoted team of helpers, for making Diaper Derby dreams come true for so many families.
