Arvada Center / Central City – Saturday, June 16
Come join the Arvada Center as we promote our summer production of “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” at Central City’s 33rd Annual Madam Lou Bunch Day and World Famous Bed Race – Saturday, June 16th.
We celebrate the life and times of Central City’s last legal madam, Lou Bunch who last appeared on our census in 1910. Costumed locals, rowdy times and our World Famous Bed Race on Central City’s Main Street. Free and open to the public, event begins at Noon! On Lou Bunch Day teams of two men and a woman compete in the annual bed races. The gents, dresed in long johns, take turns pushing the brass bed up hilly Main Street, and rolling in it with the woman, who wears a tightly laced red corset and fish-net stockings for the pleasures of this bumpy ride.
