Footbridge Fall Festival Featuring the Bed Races

Footbridge Fall Festival featuring the “Bedlam in Blairstown” Bed Races Oct. 16, 2021

Pumpkins. Food Trucks. Live Music. Vendors. Activities. Crafts. And… BED RACES!

Yes! The beds are coming back to Blairstown this October! Last held in the late 1990’s, The Blairstown Bed Races were a community favorite that long-time residents fondly remember.

“Bedlam in Blairstown,” sponsored by the BEC, will bring back this cherished event to raise funds for the restoration of the Footbridge Park, village district, and other projects to benefit the community at large.

BED RACER teams will be comprised of FIVE members; one person in the bed and four providing the horsepower. You need only to bring a decorated twin bed and frame that will strap onto BEC provided bed carraiges. More information will be posted soon on size specifications along with an updated Rules Document.

BED PARADERS can casually stroll their highly creative decorated bed entry up and down the course to the adulation of the swooning crowds without breaking a sweat.

TROPHIES will be awarded for multiple categories for both the Racers and Paraders.
