The Great Grove Bed Race

The Great Grove Bed RaceSunday, September 2, 1pm – Grand Avenue, Coconut Grove

The Great Grove Bed Race returns to the streets of Coconut Grove with a little mattress mayhem as home-made beds careen down the street at breakneck speeds. Imagine an 1/8th mile drag strip with competing bed teams of 5 (four pushers and one in-bed rider) racing against the clock. The 8 fastest teams then race head-to-head to be named winner! The schedule of events: celebrity judging and pit row parade at 1 p.m., bed races from 2 to 5, award presentations from 5 to 6, followed by the After ‘CudaPalooza Bed Race Block Party on Fuller Street with live music, drink specials and bed winners on display. It’s all in the name of charity, and this year’s beneficiary is the Junior Chambers Easter Seals Toy Drive and Childrens Hospital.
