I was a little disappointed. I didn’t have a racing team, but the initial posts for the event said that for those who weren’t racing, there would be activities/ a “block party”—there was not. For being a “Bed Race & Block Party,” it was really only a bed race. And that pet went really well, but I feel the promotions were misleading.
