EMMA CRAWFORD
PARADE & COFFIN RACES 
 
Manitou Springs is well known for some of their quirky events. The Emma Crawford Coffin Races are one of the highlights of the year, and have been featured on the Travel Channel numerous times.
 
Costumed impersonators of Emma - a 19th-century lady who was buried atop Red Mountain and whose coffin washed away several years later - ride on coffins pulled by teams of four mourners in this kooky, pre-Halloween race.
Come be a participant, or just come to watch, you'll be in for an exciting day!
