LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Following a successful running of the Kentucky Derby Marathon and miniMarathon, the Festival is putting on a race of a different kind today.
The 24th annual Great Bed Races are set for tonight at Broadbent Arena and will feature 40 teams racing beds. The beds and their "runners" will be decorated and dressed in the theme of "Now, That's Entertainment!"
The competition is divided into two divisions, the Fun Division and the Champions Division. The teams will be competing for a variety of awards and prizes, including the chance to have their bed be a part of Thursday's Pegasus Parade.
The event will start at 6 with a bed parade with the races starting at 7.
