The Charles County Chamber of Commerce and the Town of La Plata resurrected the popular bed races last weekend during the La Plata Celebration event.
Crowds gathered along La Grange Avenue to cheer on the teams who raced their decorated beds down the street hoping to pick up a prize or two.
The top winners were the Southern Maryland Carousel Group, who earned the Golden Bedpan award for being the slowest team to participate in the bed race; Southern Maryland Business Center/Reliant Assembly, who won the Cool Runnings award for being the fastest bed overall and the Most Creative award; and Shady Oaks of Serenity Bed & Breakfast team for Best Looking bed.
Team members of the Southern Maryland Carousel Group are all smiles despite winning the Golden Bedpan award in the bed race last weekend in La Plata.
The Southern Maryland Carousel Group entered a decorated bed entitled "Carousela" which was their rendition of Cinderella. The bed was pushed by members of the woodcarving group dressed as mice.
