A huge race is coming to Key West on April 29, but it’s not NASCAR or the Volvo Ocean Race. It’s the annual Conch Republic Red Ribbon Bed Race, which rolls through downtown as part of the 35th annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration Festival.

A team of four runners, some wearing costumes, races the decked-out beds while one rider lounges aboard each bed.
