Emma Crawford Days

There's an annual event in Manitou Springs, CO that commemorates a 19th century citizen, Emma Crawford. The story goes that after her death, heavy rains eroded her mountainside grave and her coffin tobogganed downslope.

The festivities begin with a hearse parade. Here's my favorite. Yes, the flamethrower is functional.
