BRUNSWICK — Brunswick Downtown Association’s Early Bird Sale and Rolling Slumber Bed Race is scheduled for Saturday.

The 7th annual Rolling Slumber Bed Races will begin at 11 a.m. on Park Row. To commemorate Veteran’s Day, BDA volunteers have arranged for a military color guard to lead the pre-race bed parade.
