Ocean and Monmouth County’s cutest babies on the move are invited to show off their newly discovered crawling skills and participate in Ocean County Mall’s first Diaper Derby competition on Saturday, May 3, 2014.

Trophies will be awarded to first, second and third-place participants. First-place winner will be given a prize package that includes toys from Boscov’s and Build-A-Bear Workshop, and a Pandora bracelet for mom. Crawlers who finish in second and third place will each receive toys and baby items, courtesy of Boscov’s.
