Lockport Coffin Race 2019

Boxcar Coffins, Bloody Marys, and Good Times

Brimming with Halloween spirit I attended Lockport’s Second Annual Coffin Race a couple weeks back. With my Nikon in one hand and a Bloody Mary in the other (which may account for the quality of some of these pictures) I posted myself on the corner of Hamilton and 10th and took a few snapshots and quite a few sips (there was more than one Bloody Mary involved). What follows is a bit of what happened.

Little did I know we were about to be pelted with an assortment of Halloween candies thrown by the racers.

Starting to wonder if I had one Bloody Mary too many?

When these racers veered off course I wondered if they were sipping Bloody Marys too?

Never thought I’d see a bunch of Killer Bees pushing a coffin to victory.

The Lockport Coffin Race was a fun time. There were some great teams with some wildly decorated boxcar coffins.
