The 26th annual Conch Republic Red Ribbon Bed Race, sponsored by Fairvilla Megastore, features decorated beds propelled down Key West’s famed Duval Street by teams of strange bedfellows. Each entry in the offbeat race incorporated a bed mounted on wheels. It was pushed or pulled down Duval by costumed race team members, while at least one other team member was required to ride on the bed. Events included a parade of decorated beds along Duval Street. Racing action followed, with pairs of teams pitted against each other to pilot their beds as fast as possible to the finish line. All proceeds benefit AIDS Help, Inc. of Key West, Florida - A non-profit community based organization that conducts health education outreach programs throughout the Florida Keys.
