Zombies lumber into Russellville for fourth annual event

Russellville Public Library is inviting zombie-lovers to #feedyourbrain at the 4th Annual Zombie Walk in downtown Russellville, set this year for Oct. 29.

“It’s a fun event for Halloween,” said library director Ashley Cummins. “(Zombies) are just a little unsettling. They’re fun because they’re creepy but they’re not so scary.”

Cummins said last year’s Zombie Walk attendance was somewhat dampened by the early scheduling of the event – held the first weekend in October – and the weather, but the library is anticipating a large number of zombies for this year’s walk.

“We’re hoping for a good turnout,” Cummins said. After last year’s lower turnout, “we almost didn’t do it again.”

Admission to this event is free. Doors open at 10 a.m., and pre-walk festivities include a professional makeup team to zombify attendees (arrive by 3:30 p.m. for make-up), a zombie bake sale, zombie trivia, a brain-eating contest, zombie karaoke, costume contest and more. The walk will begin at 5:30 p.m., beginning at the library and ending at the courthouse, tentatively.

Cummins said this event is appropriate for all ages. As has always been the case, the main thrust of the Zombie Walk is to get people in the door of the library, to realize everything a local library has to offer, and Cummins said RPL has gained many new patrons from Zombie Walks’ of past years.

Door prizes donated by local businesses are sure to attract zombies of all ages. Event T-shirts are available for presale, $10 each, through Oct. 15, with the proceeds going directly to the Friends of the Russellville Public Library.

Door prize donations and event sponsors are still needed. For more information on becoming a sponsor, or more information on the event, call 256-332-1535 and follow Russellville Public Library on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat for up-to-date details.
