Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl
Zombie makeup and fake blood is all the rage on the evening of Saturday, October 29, 2016, when Eureka Springs experiences its 5TH Annual Zombie Crawl. A creeping parade procession of funeral hearses, doomsday vehicles, Halloween floats, and post-mortem street performers will lead the hungry horde of the undead down historic Spring Street, from the Public Library to the Basin Park. Bring your kids (and your brains) downtown for some frightening family fun 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 revelers. Need help getting dead and ready? Makeup artists will be available in the Basin Park before the parade begins to assist the dearly departed with their new look.
Brains and fake blood not your thing? Zombie hunters are also needed to help organize the horde. Or cruise the loop in your ghastly "grim ride", build a freaky Halloween float, or perform a scary street act! There is no charge to participate. Zombies and other parade participants are only 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 5pm to practice your shuffle, drag, and moan. Vehicles and floats will line up at the bottom of Hillside Ave. The Zombie Crawl starts at approximately 6pm, and ends when the slow-moving zombie horde reaches Basin Park!
Then at 7pm, the Dance of the Dead begins! This official after-party in the Basin Park for the 5th Annual Zombie Crawl is FREE and will feature monster-riffic mixes by the mad scientist of music: DJ Testube! It's a dead man's party and it is not to be missed!
To participate in the parade or zombie crawl, please review our Parade Guide and Zombie Crawl Frequently Asked Questions.
