It's nearly time for the 39th annual Greenwood Lake Bed Racing event!  


Yes, that's right, bed racing.  The Bed Race will be held on Saturday, September 6th, starting at noon.  


To participate, you have to take a bed, add wheels and any appropriate decorations, find some team members who will push the bed and one to ride on top (with a helmet), fill out the paperwork, sign the waiver, and you're all set!


Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and all contestants are also eligible for the "Most Original Bed" and "Should Have Stayed in Bed" awards.


Click here for the official rules and application form, and if you go, enjoy!

I can do this!  Especially if I'm the one in the bed!

We have bed racing at a local festival in Bonita Springs at 4th of July. It's always a hoot to watch.

We entered a local bed race a few years ago.  We placed second to last.  I'm pretty sure it was operator error!

Good afternoon Kat ... what a fun time and get someone light to ride in the bed.  If you attend you must take some pictures and share.  Have a fun and safe Labor Day week-end.

Gabe - Ha, that might actually be the most dangerous spot to be!  Maybe a seatbelt is needed?

Chris- I hadn't ever heard of this before!  What a goof.

Jared - Oh my, where are the pictures?

Tom - Really?  They have this on TV?  Cool!

Judith - You enjoy your weekend also, and thanks for commenting!

Roy - You too!

Good morning Kat. I have to admit, my mind was racing on it's own. My picture of bedracing is completely different. The event must be a sight to see.

David Shamansky - I am really hoping I can get over there to see this event and take some pictures -- it must be a hoot!

Pete - I'm going to have to to some research and check out those pictures -- International bed racing!  Who would have thought?

Conrad Allen - hahaha. I think it would be a bit difficult to sleep DURING....

Joe Petrowsky - I've never been but I'm hoping I can squeeze in a visit between a few appointments.  It must be a goof.

Interesting. I can do this for sure. Never heard of a bed race but I have had some days when I was ready to race to the bed when I got home!

John Meussner - The crazier the better!

Whitney Watson - I hadn't either and the amazing thing is apparently there are international bed races!  Who would have known?

Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC - Two totally different events for sure!   There's a bedrace in Flagler Beach in November - sounds like a great photo opp!

That sounds pretty interesting but a little dangerous.

Tammie White - I agree about the danger part.  I'm assuming the person laying on the bed takes some sort of protective measures.  I'd want a bed belt!
