Round up four friends into a team and join the wacky, fun Bed Race, held in September of each year in Bellingham’s Civic Field parking lot. The Bed Race begins with an informal parade as costumed teams showcase their decorated and newly mobile beds. You can also sponsor a team. Lots of laughs and free family fun, with a chance to donate if you wish. Prizes awarded for fastest bed (grease those wheels!), most money raised, best theme, and more. All proceeds benefit Interfaith’s Family Promise, which offers shelter and meals in existing church buildings to local families in need throughout Whatcom County. For information on this fun event, check out the Bed Race website.
