SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A crowd estimated at several hundred gathered in San Antonio's East City for the eighth running of the Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby.

Ten adult teams and three kids' teams lined up Saturday to compete in eight heats of pushcart racing, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

"It's a community event to bring all the neighbors together, to showcase craziness and fun," said Juan Garcia, president of the Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association, which, along with Texas Public Radio, sponsored the event.

Awards were given for creativity and for winning the pushcart race.

Other festivities at the event included three-piece jazz band played and free samples of Alamo Golden Ale.

"It's about trying to break down barriers about the East Side," Garcia said.
