Zombie apocalypse returning to Prescott this weekend


Zombie apocalypse returning to Prescott this weekend

PRESCOTT - The undead are back in town.

The third annual Prescott Zombie Walk returns to the Fort Town October 26-27. Growing on last year's success, the 2018 version of the Halloween festival will include an extended line-up of events.

New this season is the addition of some Friday night activities, including the telling of ghost stories and a "screaming contest". Scheduled from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., at 253 King Street (Glasgow House), local speakers will be sharing their favourite ghost stories as well as reading the winning entries from the annual short-fiction competition. The screaming contest is open to all and will offer prizes for loudest, longest and most frightening. Costumes are encouraged.

Saturday, from noon until-3:00 p.m., the clock tower area will be the site of a casual car show, vendors, face painting, zombie gathering (all costumes welcome). The South Grenville Food bank will have a bbq on hand and visitors will be entertained by the live music of the popular local band Happy Crap. "Main Street Trick or Treat" will see a number of King Street merchants handing out seasonal goodies. There are even free family-friendly zombie yoga sessions going on inside Glasgow House on Saturday.

At 3:00 pm, the zombie walk will depart from clock tower; stumble east on King Street to Edward, north on Edward to Luxe Boutiques (392 King St.) for more fun Halloween activities and haunted basement.

There will also be a "Coffin Café" at LUXE Boutiques from 4:30 pm -8:00 p.m. on Friday and 3:30 pm -8:00 p.m. on Saturday.
