About the event

EMMA! Manitou Spring's 24th annual coffin race & festival, honoring Emma Crawford (who was buried up the montain, but some 40 years later, her casket came sliding down the hillside, after a harsh winter and thaw, so for the past 20+ years teams honor her with casket racing). Includes an opening parade, dressing up and a beer garden. Go to EMMA for more information.
