Manitou Springs Coffin Races (Emma Crawford Coffin Races) are a big deal in Manitou Springs and the Pikes Peak Area. They have been featured frequently on the Travel Channel.
See our Emma Crawford Coffin Races blog post from 2009 to find out more about who Emma Crawford was, and the coffin races themselves, which occur every Halloween weekend.
2011 Coffin Races are Saturday, October 29, 2011 on Manitou Avenue in Manitou Springs from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.
