12th Annual Forest Park Casket Races

October 19 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Spectating is free. Racing is $35 per team.

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.’

Races start at 11 am but come early to join in the fun…then enjoy Trick or Treat on Madison immediately following the races.

LOCATION: Beloit Avenue between Madison & Adams in Forest Park (7500 Madison St.)
