LYNDEN - The first-place prize at the Lynde 500 will double to $2,000 if 20 or more teams are entered for it this year.
Tom and Marla Entrikin have issued the challenge, pledging to add $1,000 to the current $1,000 top prize if the goal is met. They are making the donation in memory of Joe and Phyllis Entrikin, who were longtime supporters of the community and of the Lynden Pioneer Museum.
The annual push-cart race is held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Labor Day at Front and Fourth streets.
Entries for the race are being accepted through Aug. 29. For kits, rules and entry information, contact the Lynden Pioneer Museum, 217 Front St., 360-354-3675 or go to lyndenpioneermuseum.com.
