About the Chillicothe Halloween Festival
One of the main attractions of this festival is the Coffin Races. Teams of 3 to 5 people race their homemade coffins along the street with one team member sitting in the coffin. Teams compete two at a time, racing along the street, and the winner of each round advances to the next round! There is an online registration form to compete in this event.
Take the Ghost Walk self-guided tour around five locations – City Council Building, Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop, Tea of Life Apothecary, Wreck Creations, and Old Capitol Brewing.
