The Festival of Lights bed race is back.
Beckstead Real Estate and Groll Family Fitness are sponsoring this year’s Festival of Lights International Bed Race to be held on Nov. 30, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
For years it was one of the more popular winter competitions on State Street.
Two beds will be provided for the race. If someone wants to bring their own bed they can Chris Groll said. “We will be having a Bed Race Parade prior to the race.”
If someone wants to bring a bed they still can, but the bed must meet the requirement and standards of international bed race rules.
This years sponsors have been sending letters to business and schools all over the valley trying to increase participation.
“We have sent letters to Sky View, Mountain Crest and Logan as well as the local high schools,” Beckstead said. “We want to throw down the gauntlet and have a great challenge.”
Applications can be picked up at Groll Family Fitness or Beckstead Real Estate.
