River Fest in Skowhegan kicks off on Wednesday, July 31st and goes through August 3rd. The multi-day event includes a Free Movie Night, Chicken Barbecue, Classic Car Cruise-In, Lobster Bake, Craft Fair, a concert in the park, and more!

One event, in particular, caught my eye. The annual Bed Races down Water Street on Thursday, August 1st at 7 pm.

This event for those ages 14+ is just what it sounds like. You outfit a bed on wheels and zoom down the street! Each team consists of five people. One team member lays atop the mattress that sits on caster wheels while the remainder of the team pushes the bed and races other teams down Water Street.

To get involved you'll need to register through Skowhegan's Parks & Rec department or you can register at the Moonlight Madness event on that same day before 6:30 pm.
