We know you probably spend your evenings doing a little bit of light couchsurfing. However, this weekend in Sanford "couchsurfing" gets a whole new meaning.  Sofas & Suds pits couch against couch ins couch racing event this Sunday at 2 p.m. Teams of five hop on their best (or the only one they could find) couch and push it through downtown Sanford.

Along with a silly couch-tastic time cheering on your favorite local business as they take a chance at the champion trophy, local vendors will also be sampling their wares (for a fee, of course), including Shantell's, Willow Tree Café and more.

And though we know just how exciting this event will be, we do feel it is our duty to encourage anyone not to try this at home. As of this posting, there are still three spots available in the races. Visit the Sofas & Suds Facebook page for registration details. But first, you might wanna check out this video from last year to get an idea of what you're signing up for:
