The Lockport Rotary Club is hosting the Inaugural Coffin Race, starting at noon on October 20. The event starts with a parade of coffins, followed by racing down Hamilton Street (between 12th and 10th Street).
Each team will include four runners (“pushers”) to propel the coffin and one “dead guy” wearing a protective helmet. Three out of the four pushers must remain in direct contact with the coffin at all times, and each coffin must stay in its own designated lane.
Following the races, an after party will occur at the Hamilton Street parking lot. The fun will include food trucks, beer garden and a DJ. So, remember to come dressed up – as it is close to halloween.
