Forest Park Casket Races 2014

Forest Park Casket Races 2014The Forest Park 3rd Annual Casket Races were held on Saturday and they were wickedly fun! It was the perfect day–cool and crisp and sunny. And look at those leaves! Forest Park Casket Races 2014We found a good seat on the curb kind of in the middle of the “track” and had a great time seeing the funny costumes and caskets. My favorites were the guys above, who all dressed like The Count from Sesame Street. (Although, I do believe those giant heads cost them the race…not very aerodynamic.)

(The second picture shows them carrying Bernie during the post-race casket parade.)Forest Park Casket Races 2014The Forest Park Library got into the action with zombie librarians.
