The subject of one of the oldest ghost stories in Manitou Springs, 19th-century tuberculosis victim Emma Crawford lives on in the 19th annual Emma Crawford Coffin Races and Parade, held from noon to 3 p.m. today (manitousprings.org). If you've not yet seen 50 costumed teams race coffins down Manitou Avenue for local glory — and to commemorate torrential rain sweeping Emma's coffin down the side of Red Mountain in 1929 — today's your day to fix that. — Anna Palmer
