The Bed Race is a long standing tradition at Winterlude. It took place at Dow's Lake on the second weekend, where teams drawn from city businesses or organizations came together. They were made up of five people, four of whom were positioned on each corner of a bed frame mounted on wheels, the fifth to take up position on top. For each race, the teams would run down the length of the course, and the winner would advance to the next round. I caught some of the action, including teams from previous heats bringing their bed frames back up to the start, as well as a dog who was taking in the event. Yes, it all looks demented (hence the guy in the Tigger costume), but that's part of the fun.
