Eugene's third annual Halloween Coffin Races showcases soapbox derby cars racing down Shelton McMurphey Blvd on the south side of Skinner Butte. In addition to the white-knuckled thrill of the races, friends and families of all ages can get crafty at the Pumpkins & Power Tools exhibit, boogie down to sweet rhythms on-site, enjoy locally brewed cider and beer and eat like the living with local food and coffee options, all while cheering on your favorite team.
For the races, anybody seeking glory is welcome to sign up to race in coffin-inspired cars. Any car with functional brakes and steering is good to compete, but make sure to dress it up as spooky as can be!
The Shelton McMurphey Johnson House will showcase Victorian Mourning rituals and customs from noon to 4 p.m.
The soapbox derby is hosted by the City of Eugene. See the event calendar for more Halloween events.
