Oak Parkers Ginger Colamussi and Kelly Benkert were named “Frighteningly Funny” at the sixth annual Casket Races in Forest Park on Oct. 27, characters dressing up as Alice in Wonderland. During the races, five-person teams build their own casket and run as fast as they can down Beloit Avenue from Adams to Madison. After two heats, their fastest time was 32.17 seconds.
