Great Grove Bed Race is back September 1st!
Homemade beds race down the streets of Coconut Grove, the origins of bed racing date back three decades with this being the fifth anniversary of the Great Grove Bed Race race with it’s the Fast-Signs-fast-track and professional speed-way style play-by-play and on site live radio with Celebrity Grand Marshall each year.
Tireless teams consist of five members—call it a “five-way”—with four ready-to-romp racers and one rider hitched to the headboard. Speed still wins the ultimate exhale at the checkered flag, but with record high votes on crowd favorite - the true race day winners topped out at five thousand total voters by phone. It’s a new era for the event and it’s fans. Awards also are given for theme, creativity and décor (this being a consummate competition) taking the laugh-a-meter to it’s bulbous top. Celebrity judges will be on hand to grade those looking to score away from home, and proceeds from this roll in the hay of hilarity benefit Local charities through the Junior Chamber International Crew of hundreds of cone-head volunteers.
“This year the registration is filling fast by both veterans and virgins, corporations and merchants.” said Barbara Ferenczi, Event Partnerships & Marketing Director. The only ones missing are media teams going bed-to-bed which would top the many surprises in store this year”.
This Labor Day Weekend, Coconut Grove is the place to be for some laborious laughter. For event info—and to register to create your own bedlam—visit TheGreatGroveBedRace.com. Don’t sleep on it!
