Let’s be honest, we all watch ‘Walking Dead‘ and think we can survive a Zombie apocalypse. Well here’s your chance to prove it to your friends. The crawl – gather in zombie costumes and “crawl” through downtown – is free, but if you’re feeling frisky you can run in the 5K as well. When you take part in the race you have the option of being a survivor or a zombie, but you’d better be quick if you’re a survivor because the zombies will be after your flags! Now if you’re feeling a little lazy and don’t feel like running don’t worry, you can still watch with a ton of stuff going on downtown. Enjoy free live music, a variety of food and specialty vendors, costume contest, rib eating contest, and raffle drawings.
