The famous Great Grove Bed Race is back this year with a weekend full of free activities for the family.
The weekend kicks off with a Pajama Pub Crawl on Saturday, Sept. 4 in Coconut Grove. Pajama-garbed participants donate $25 to charity and receive 10 free drink coupons for 10 different bars in Coconut Grove.
The main event takes place on Sunday, Sept. 5, when tricked-out beds are raced down an 1/8 mile thoroughfare in Coconut Grove, with prizes for speed and best decor. The event is free and open to the public. It takes place near the corner of Commodore & Grand Ave., in Coconut Grove.
There are also some special deals associated with the event: There’s a $5 breakfast special at The Grove Spot, 3324 Virginia Street, and two-for-one breakfast at Mayfair Hotel and Spa, 3000 Florida Avenue.
