The Hurry Hurry Hippos having fun while participating in the Casket Race in Forest Park on Saturday, Oct. 22. | Shanel Romain

Walking slowly, Richard Bachman & Associates highlighted Stephen King’s horror masterpieces and earned the “Dead Last” trophy; the park district’s Golden Ghouls pushed the Shady Pine’s casket into the top spot, earning the first place trophy; Mrs. Bogdan, principal of Field Stevenson, sat in the driver’s seat of the D91 Magic School bus which was pushed by faculty and administration; families, friends and pets lined Beloit with costumes then headed to Madison for trick-or-treating at businesses.
