Party with the Zombies in Paragould This Saturday!

paragould zombie walk logo1Halloween is almost up us! And that means it’s time for the 2nd annual Zombie Walk in the one-and-only downtown Paragould.

The fun begins the evening of Oct. 26. Registration begins at 5 p.m. The costume contest begins at 7 p.m. Zombies can enter the contest for a fee of $2 for adults and $1 for the kids ages 12 and under. There are five categories in this year’s costume contest: most grotesque, celebrity, novelty, best group and best zombie kid.

There will also be a photo booth to capture your time as or with a zombie. Prints are $2.00 each with proceeds benefiting our friends at Main Street paragould zombie walk3Paragould (that’s the zombie form of Main Street Paragould director Gina Jarrett on the right!). The booth will be available from 5:30-8:30 the night of the Zombie Walk.

The walk begins at 8:30 p.m. Last year, over 550 zombies made their way to downtown Paragould for the first Zombie Walk. Organizers are expecting even undead this year. As you know, zombies like to travel in packs!
