Editor's Pick: 

Yes, a bed race. This annual tradition in Greenwood Lake--now in its 41st year--involves a parade followed by a race of people pushing and riding on beds they craft themselves on wheels. Prizes are awarded to first-, second- and third-place winners, as determined by the event judge (the losers "should have stayed in bed," they say). Enter your own or cheer on your favorite.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 12pm - Registration
  • 1pm - Parade followed by bed race

Rain date: Sunday, September 17.
