United Way of Greater Waterbury is excited to bring back a local Waterbury tradition to a new generation with the return of Bed Races! The 2017 Bed Races will take place on Saturday, October 14th, and will begin at City Hall in Waterbury. It's sure to be a great day for the Greater Waterbury area filled with fun, food, and friends.
All participants in the 2017 Bed Races must download and complete the waiver and submit the morning of the race.
