    • July 4th   |   The Bed Races. :

      We’re taking a Bed Race hiatus until 2020. There will be no bed races in 2017

      So many champions and legacies. Will the trophy be stolen and thrown to the bottom of the lake? Will there be a heated debate about bicycle wheels and steering mechanisms? Who has what it takes to prep the most speediest and safest bed around? From Coast to Coast there is nothing quite like the Long Lake Bed Races. This year the crowd will reach a fever pitch with Internationally reknowned MC making Long Lake an annual pit stop on his global tour! Peter Michael Marino entertains, keeps the crowd rolling and even interviews drive-thru traffic. This year, 2016 2pm is the show start time for the Long Lake Bed Races. Don’t be a wimp, sign up… you got to play it to win it. 2015 Champs, The Cellar Restaurant and Pub, have held on to the glory all year, will they keep the title? Location Long Lake Bridge to Beach Come on, you know you want to!
