The first ever Bay County Chamber of Commerce Bed Races was held on Thursday, March 19th, at the annual Board of Directors Block Party. The event was held from 5-7 p.m. in front of the Chamber building at 235 West 5th Street.
Member businesses raced down 5th Street on a bed they constructed. First place went to the United States Coast Guard, second place was awarded to Centennial Bank and Bay Medical Sacred Heart won third place. Other prizes were awarded for “Best Bed Design”, “Craziest Bed Design” and “Best Team Spirit”.
Those who attended enjoyed free hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, drinks, games, live entertainment from True Soul, a bounce house for kids, and much more. InkTrax printed complimentary commemorative Block Party t-shirts in exchange for a school supply item for the Junior League of Panama City.This is the fourth year the Bay County Chamber of Commerce has held a free Block Party for Chamber members and the community. We would like to thank our Board of Directors and InkTrax for sponsoring this event.
