10th Annual Forest Park Casket Races
Get in the ‘spirit’ and join us for a frightfully good time at our annual Casket Races.
Watching the races is a thrill…but participating is devilishly delightful! Form your team and start training now for your chance to win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, or the most frightfully funny, or creepiest ‘casket’. There’s also a trophy for the team that comes in ‘dead last.’
