Melt the ice with Bed Races 2016

Build a “bed”, wear a costume, and race down the street in the middle of winter. 

Prepare to tear up the streets of downtown Port Huron. Chilly Fest is fast approaching and with it the coolest event in town: Bed Races.

This crowd favorite returns Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016 at the intersection of McMorran Blvd. and Superior Mall. Racing starts at 3 p.m.

Compete for awesome prizes against creatively costumed teams in timed relays amid optional distracts like whistles and silly string.

Remember: inventive costumes and dirty tricks are half the fun! Last year we even had a presidential detail with police escort.

Teams consist of five people, including four racers and a sleeper. Entry fee is $25 per team.
