Join us in downtown Bedford on Sunday, May 29th for a rip-roaring good time!  This is your chance to speed down the street without getting a ticket!

Here’s What’s Happening!

2:30 – 3:30 bed registrations at the old Bedford Elementary School on Juliana Street (where Coverlet Museum is located)

3:45 – Bed Parade – lap around the block so you can strut your stuff for the People’s Choice award contest

Races begin following the parade

Racing on Juliana Street, starting at Vondersmith Avenue and ending at Butler Avenue

Two teams race side by side for one timed run. We will then seed you.


Business/Organization (18 and older); High School (grades 9-12)

We are taking just 16 teams in each category so don’t snooze or you’ll lose!  When we reach 16,  we will put teams on a waiting list in the event a spot opens.


Cash for the Fastest in each Division

Cash for the People’s Choice: DBI will take a picture of each bed and post it on our Facebook page. The bed with the most likes by 9pm on Monday, May 30th wins the cash prize!

Trophies awarded for: fastest overall; most creative bed/attire; best engineered bed; and the broken spring award (otherwise known as the “What Were You Thinking” award).
