Westmont - The 4th Annual Caskets on Cass Race is scheduled for Saturday, October 19. The downtown Westmont event is always as fun for the racers as it is for the visitors. 

In the casket races, teams decorate a racecar like a casket and match its theme in their attire. Then, they race down Cass Avenue together with some team members pushing and other members steering. It's surely a sight to see, and it becomes more popular every year. 

The Westmont Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau (WCCTB) encourages businesses to partake in the "Trick or Treat Marketing Fun." 

It's a "great way to get business exposure and bragging rights in front of an enthusiastic community crowd! Get your thinking caps on for your business casket design!" stated WCCTB. 

Visit to enter. The entry fee is $25 per team. Business teams, organizations and non-business teams are all welcome.
