Sale, Bed Races Set in Bar Harbor

BAR HARBOR — The early bird will get incredible savings in Bar Harbor on Saturday, Nov. 12, during the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Early Bird and Pajama Sale.

Following the biggest retail event of the year, the Chamber of Commerce is staging its Fourth Annual Bed Race.

Shoppers are invited to arm themselves with shopping bags and brave the elements to cash in on deep discounts from 6 to 9 a.m.

While all are welcome to take advantage of the sale, the best deals will go to those clad in their finest sleepwear and adventurous enough to be out at the earliest hours.

Following the sale, spectators will gather on Cottage Street to watch teams push a bed and rider across the finish line in the shortest amount of time during the fourth annual bed races.

Anyone over 14 years of age is welcome to compete, but at least one member of the team must be 18 years of age or older. A $25 entry fee per team goes to fill the prize coffers.

Entry forms, rules and more details can be found on the chamber’s website, with a deadline for entry of Nov. 7.
