Photos: Ghouls and Goblins at the Emma Crawford Coffin Races in Manitou Springs

In Denver, we've got the Zombie Crawl, but in Manitou Springs, the Emma Crawford Coffin Races have been a time-honored Halloween-season tradition for nearly twenty years. Over the weekend, fifty costumed teams took to the streets of Manitou, pushing hand-built caskets on wheels and causing a general ruckus. Brandon Marshall caught all the best ghouls and boos in pictures; read on for a sampler.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.


Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
