When last we reported on the Hudson Bed Races, there were seven beds registered for the race. Now there are ten!
This morning, event organizer Rich Volo reported that an eighth bed, Rip Van Dinkle, had entered the race, and this afternoon, there were two more entries: Gen Now 1 and Gen Now 2.
And there's more last-minute news. Former mayor Dick Tracy (2006-2007), who organized the original Hudson Bed Races in the 1980s when he was director of the Youth Department, will be announcing the beds.
To ensure that you stake out your spot for viewing the races in the right stretch of Warren Street, here's the word on the course. The race begins at Sixth Street and ends in front of City Hall, 520 Warren Street. The races begin at 2 p.m.
