Strange Halloween Traditions- Emma Crawford Coffin Races

Folks who live in Manitou Springs, Colorado have a strange way of celebrating Halloween each year- they dress up and race decorated coffins down the street.

The Emma Crawford Coffin Races are a yearly tradition which is named after a woman whose coffin-ated body washed down Red Mountain during a flood.

Now the townspeople celebrate her memory by dressing up, some in clothing inspired by the late Ms. Crawford, parading their fancy coffins down the street then teams race their "Emma" down the 195-yard track for a trophy, bragging rights, and a $50 gift certificate for the local shops.

Sounds like a fun way to spend the afterlife!
