BOP Bed Race 2010
For the first time a bed race was held as part of the Battle of Plattsburgh events. City Hall Place had already been blocked off from traffic, making it easier to set up the contest on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 11th.
Among the entrants was a Flintstones-themed race bed, including Dino the pet dinosaur. The cavemen competitors called themselves the Rock Eaters, a reference to a Saturday Night Live skit that mocked Plattsburghers by calling them by that name.
