Rolling Slumber Bed Races - Cancelled

Per current regulations from the State of Maine limiting outside gatherings to 100 people and due to the nature of this event, the BDA has decided to cancel the 2020 Rolling Slumber Bed Races. We look forward to seeing you back on Park Row for the exciting bed races in 2021!

In the spirit of Community, families, businesses and local organizations can create a bed to race in this amazing, fun-filled event. The Rolling Slumber Bed Race will entertain spectators with fast, funny and uniquely created beds — all on wheels!

Prizes will be awarded for speed, creativity and team spirit. The event is free for spectators. 

If you are interested in participating, we are looking for some bed racing enthusiasts to put on a show, win prizes and bragging rights in the process!  Get your team together now and start planning to create your entry, whether for fun, speed or creativity!  For additional information, please contact the BDA staff at 729-4439 or
