Delighting the Crowds at the Mocksville Bed Races!


“Twas the Night Before Bed Race” and all through the town,
were a series of teams wishing the flag would go down;
More rapid than eagles the race beds they came,

And the crowds whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
Now Manna Movers! Now Minions! Now WXII!
On Crazy Legs! On Skills USA! On Bandits!  On Express Delivery!

The town of Mocksville raced into the Christmas season on November 18th with the 5th Annual “Twas the Night Before” Bed Race as 20 race teams made the mad dash down Main Street.

Mocksville Bed Races -2016 ‘Twas The Night Before Bed Race!

$500 in Cash Prizes at Stake!
At stake were prizes for speed and creativity. The fastest team, Davie High Skills USA,  took home a cool $200 in cash, while the runner-up, Krazy Legs, collected $125.  Manna Movers, the third-place finisher,  rolled away with $75. Carolgale Builders picked up $50 for being the Most Creative.  A Total Package prize of $50 went to the Dragonfly House team for having the best overall appearance and combination of bed decoration, message and costumes.

Despite the bed race coinciding with a Davie High football playoff game, Tami Langdon, Mocksville Tourism Development Authority, was pleased with turnout and considered the event a success.   

“Tina Crews, our DJ,  had folks dancing’ in the street during the heat breaks,” she said. “The police were phenomenal that night with the traffic flow and the town maintenance crew had the course up & ready QUICKLY  as well as torn down. They were vital to the logistics of this event.”

“Special THANKS to Denise Hendrix, the organizer of the event, and her daughter Jordan, who sets up the Bed Race Face Book (Twas the Night Before Bed Race), “  she added. “I also want to thank Ed Simmons for his photography work that evening.”
