3rd Annual Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl & Day of the Dead Parade

Zombie makeup and fake blood is all the rage on the evening of Saturday, November 1, 2014, when Eureka Springs experiences its 3rd Annual Zombie Crawl & Day of the Dead Parade. A creeping parade procession of funeral hearses, doomsday vehicles, Halloween floats, and post-mortem street performers will lead the hungry horde of the undead.

New for this year is a very special Zombie Flash Mob performance coordinated by Melonlight Dance Studio. Bring your kids (and your brains) downtown for some frightening family fun, as viewed from the sidelines, or join the crawl yourselves! The event is free, and locals and visitors alike are invited to dress up and join the procession of undead. Brains and fake blood not your thing? ¬†Cruise the parade in your ghastly “grim ride”, build a freaky Halloween float, or perform a scary street act! Zombies and parade participants are asked to each bring two (or more) cans of food to benefit the Flint Street Food Bank. Be at the Carnegie Public Library at 194 Spring Street by 5:30pm to practice your shuffle, drag, and moan. Vehicles and floats will line up at the bottom of Hillside Ave. The crawl/parade starts at 6:30pm, and ends when the horde reaches the Basin Spring Park!

Just when you thought you’d seen enough of those zany zombies…they start to dance!?!? Grab a quick bite to eat after the parade, and then shuffle up to Melonlight Dance Studio for the official Dance of the Dead¬†after-party, starting at 8pm. Hosted by Melonlight in their new location at 121 E Van Buren (in The Quarter Shopping Center on HWY 62, next to Harts Grocery Store), the after-party will feature the eerie electronic mashups and monsterrific mixes of DJ TESTUBE. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. The party ends at 10pm. Don’t be caught dead somewhere else!
