Grab four of your co-workers, build a bed on wheels, decorate it, dress in a ridiculous costume—and then race. That pretty much sums up the Kentucky Derby Festival Bed Races. Each year, thousands of enthusiasts gather to cheer on more than 40 teams, while on-air personalities from WAVE TV anchor the live coverage from every angle, from the crowd to the pits.

Hosted by 107.7 The Eagle personalities, the awards ceremony recognizes the following winners:

Fastest Course Times: 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Best Decoration and Entertainment: 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Cone Eater Award
Best Decorated “Now That’s Entertainment!”
Most Entertaining
People’s Choice Award: For $1 a vote, fans can vote for their favorite bed. Half of the proceeds are donated to the Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation and the other half is donated to the 501C3 charity chosen by the winning bed team
