Zombies Are Coming to Festival of Pumpkins

This Article Brought To You By:

If you are going to attend the Festival of Pumpkins for its many activities, food, and vendors, then you need to take part in this year’s Zombie Walk. The Zombie Walk last year was so fun and successful that it will be returning this year. The Zombie Zone will be inside the YWCA, located at 138 Lamar Avenue. There will be contests for the best 0-5 age category at 12:15 pm, 6-11 age category at 12:30 pm, 12-17 age category at 12:45 pm, 18 and up age category at 1pm, as well as the best Zombie Couple 18 and up at 1:15 pm and the Miss Zombie Paris, Texas at 1:30 pm.

The Zombie Walk parade itself will kick off at 2 p.m. There will also be live music after the Zombie Walk, provided by Silent Coup and Alex Addy & Tambourine Machine inside the YWCA gym. Xquisite Hair and Body Works will be doing hair and local makeup artists from the drama clubs will be handling the makeup. There will also be zombies that you can shoot with paintguns and a coffin ride for the adventurous.

All proceeds will go to benefit the Safe-T/YWCA as well as the Red River Valley Veterans Memorial. Donations can also be made to Carter Bloodcare.
