James Baker, left, and David Trice reacted after spilling a glass of wine in the waiters race on July 4, 1984 in downtown Lexington. The race was part of Lexington’s Fourth of July celebration. Baker and Trice, representing the Lafayette Club, were in first place and were about 20 feet from the finish line when their glass toppled over. Eight seconds were added to a team’s time for every ounce of wine spilled, and that penalty knocked them out of first place. Lexington’s 2016 Fourth of July festival will be held Monday.
