World Championship Running of the Tubs

Location: Downtown Hot Springs, Bathhouse Row

This hilarious and wacky event is a celebration of Hot Springs’ historic past when the city proclaimed “We Bathe The World!"

Pushing customized bathtubs, costumed teams must race down Historic Downtown Hot Springs while navigating all sorts of crazy obstacles. The event is free to the public and consists of costumed teams loading up in authentic wheeled bathtubs for a race through the streets of Hot Springs. Audiences are also encouraged to come out with “water guns, house slippers, shower cap, and robe, to join in on all the fun while watching the parade along Historic Bathhouse Row!

The event is a celebration of Hot Springs’ historic past when the city proclaimed “We Bathe The World!” and the coveted "Stueart Pennington Cup" is named in honor of Stueart Pennington, a well-known and respected downtown businessman.

Big thanks to our presenting sponsor Bathhouse Soapery & Caldarium!
