Crawlers, start your engines! The Shops at Montebello invites the area’s cutest babies to crawl their way to victory at its second-annual Diaper Derby on Saturday, April 25, from11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Center Court.


The Diaper Derby is a series of crawling races on a soft, sanitized surface, and is open to all babies less than 12 months old who are not yet walking. Proud family members and friends are invited to cheer on the babies in each of the three heats of six babies each.


The top crawler from each of the three races will compete for prizes in the final race. The fastest crawler will receive a 1st place prize of a $100 gift card to Baby GAP, the 2nd place racer will win a $75 gift card to the Children’s Place and 3rd place will earn a $50 gift card to Gymboree. All of the winners will also receive a shiny trophy as a memento of their little one’s victory.


Parents will try to motivate their children at the finish line, coaxing them to cross the line first with everything from the playing of instruments to holding a child’s favorite toy or teddy bear, and generally encouraging them along the way.

Mundo FOX Channel 22 entertainment reporter Melissa Martinez Romero is slated to emcee all the action.


“The Diaper Derby is such a fun community event, and a day well spent with family and loved ones at The Shops at Montebello,” said Marida Petitjean, director of marketing and business development at The Shops at Montebello.

Registration and participation in the event is free. To register, families can visit The Shops at Montebello’s Guest Services booth, located on the lower level near Macy’s Home. A maximum of 18 participants will be registered for the event, and all registered participants will receive a Graco diaper bag as a special gift from The Shops at Montebello on the day of the event.

Other enjoyable activities will include special offers, giveaways, prizes, a face painter, balloon artist, and lots of fun for the whole family. The event will also include retailer stations from The Body Shop, GAP, GNC, Hot Dog on a Stick, Wetzel’s Pretzels, JCPenney Portraits and The Children’s Place, with various displays, coupons, raffles and samples.
