Popular bed race back in 3 Rivers Festival
The waiter/waitress competition also will return, while the opening-day parade could be largest ever.

"This year’s Fort Wayne Newspapers Three Rivers Festival is bringing back, by popular demand, the bed race. The race, or what organizers called a “real sleeper event” when it debuted in 1974, will feature teams of five – one person on a mattress, and the others pushing."
