Bells Big Bed Race


THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED WITH THE 2019 BELL’S BIG BED RACE!

We’ll have photos, videos, and commentary up very soon to show you the great fun we all had on August 4!

 


ABOUT THIS EVENT

Bell’s Big Bed Race is a quirky,  super fun, family-friendly event to benefit Bell Socialization Services’ programs that help make sure local people have safe, affordable housing and a bed to sleep in at night.


WHAT TO EXPECT ON RACE DAY  Teams of five — four pushers and one rider — build and decorate race-worthy beds (guidelines) and race against other teams in one-on-one heats with spectators cheering them on from the sidelines.  (Check out this footage from a previous event.)

Event day kicks off  with a Parade of Beds where you can check out all the great decorations and pick your favorites. Awards are presented for People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice.

WHERE? The 2019 Bed Race will be held at Penn Park in York in coordination with Equality Fest happening the same day from 12  noon to 6 p.m.   For directions to the event site from where you live, use 100 West College Avenue, York as the address.

Event PARKING – There is free street parking plus some local lots in close vicinity. We’ll have volunteers to direct you to the main parking lot, which is on the corner of Pershing and Princess Streets. (Teams and volunteers will be directed to use the Bell parking lot.)
