Description

Forget the Indy 500, Daytona 500, and the Kentucky Derby. For sheer drama and athletic prowess exhibited while wearing pajamas, nothing tops the Oatman Bed Races. Five-person teams, with four pushers and one sheet jockey, propel beds through Oatman’s main drag at breakneck speeds. No wagering, please. Let’s keep the sport pure. This annual event takes place on January 28th at 1pm. But festivities rock this gold mining town/wild burrow hangout from 10am to 4pm. Costumes and pajamas are strongly encouraged because that’s how Oatman rolls! If you and four amigos have the right stuff, the entry fee for the bed races is $50. Per team and beds are provided. You can even sign up the day of the event before noon. And don’t worry, officials will clear Oatman’s beloved burros off the street before the race begins. No admission fee for spectators. www.oatmanchamberofcommerce.com. 928.577.9139.
