2017 JUG TAVERN FESTIVAL 2ND ANNUAL BED RACE

Winder, Ga. (June 13, 2017) — The 2017 Jug Tavern Festival (JTF) announces the 2nd Annual Jug Tavern Festival Bed Race will be held on Saturday, September 16th at Jug Tavern Park in Winder.

“Last year’s bed race turned out great. There were so many people who came to watch, and I think both the spectators and the teams had a great time,” says April Plank, JTF organizer.

The sport of bed racing consists of a team of five people, and a constructed bed on four wheels. Each team must design and construct their own bed according to the race’s construction regulations, and push their decorated bed down the street against other teams. This year’s theme is “Superheroes,” and teams are encouraged to decorate their beds and wear costumes or dress the part of the theme.

The 2016 Overall Winner was the Winder Fire Department. Second Place went to Curves of Winder and Third Place went to Krystal. The Broken Spring Award went to Friends Winder Grill, and the People’s Choice Award also went to Curves of Winder. The awards, which are custom-made jugs especially made for the Jug Tavern Festival, will be given during the 2017 Bed Race as well.

Faith-based organizations, fitness centers, schools, nonprofits and businesses or even just a group of friends can have a lot of fun participating in the race. Constructing the bed, coming up with a theme, teamwork, and a little bit of friendly competition all help to make a bed race successful. The race itself will be held on Saturday, September 16th at approximately 1:00 pm on East Athens Street, directly in front of the Jug Tavern Park.
