Manitou Springs, CO 80829
Manitou Springs celebrates the 24th Annual Emma Crawford Coffin Race & Festival, Sat. Oct. 27th. Parade starts at 12:00 pm followed by up to 70 teams racing coffins down Manitou Avenue for the ultimate victory. Each team consists of one Emma and four runners dressed in costume. The fastest times earn trophies as well as a chance to win Best Emma, Best Entourage, and Best Coffin.
Given the volume of expected Coffin Race attendees, the scale of the event and the limited park in Manitou Springs, Coffin Race organizers have devised a shuttle plan to maximize ease of access while limiting impact in town. Spectator parking will be available at:
and ROCK LEDGE RANCH, 3105 Gateway Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80904
Shuttles will run every 15 minutes starting at 9 am thru 6 pm.
