A different kind of four-wheeled vehicle will be taking over the road at Hampton Park for the Charleston Bed Race, as five-person teams flock from all over with beds decked out in decor of all kinds, complete with fully functioning wheels. If you’re aiming to roll by without running, you’ll have to convince your four other team members to let you be the “bed rider.” And luckily, you need not be the fastest team to win. Before the heats begin, all racing beds will take part in a grand parade, allowing judges to get a good look at each team before dishing out awards. Teams will win for fastest bed, slowest bed, best decorated bed, most outrageously decorated bed, “What were you thinking?” bed, and the People’s Choice Award. All this mayhem has an important purpose — it benefits Camp Happy Days, a year-round program helping South Carolina’s children kick cancer. There will be food trucks and beer, two sure signs of a great event. Get a team together and wheel on over to Hampton Park. After all, it’s the second most fun you can have in bed.
