‘Tis the season for eating brains


Here’s one weekend option unlike some of the others we’ve mentioned today — getting dressed up like a zombie, crawling around Visalia, then partying with zombie friends.

Saturday is the Zombie Ball and Crawl in Visalia, organized by the Central Valley Horror Club. It starts with a Zombie Crawl down Mooney Blvd. at 6:15 p.m., then the Zombie Ball starts at 7 p.m. at Howie & Son’s Pizza Parlor with live music, a costume contest and the crowning of the Creepshow Queen.

It’s an all-ages event. Last year, it drew more than 250 zombies. You don’t have to dress up like a zombie, but it’s encouraged — and you get a discount if you do. The cover charge is $5 for zombies and $7 for non-zombies.

If Visalia is too far for the walking dead to travel, then know that the Tower District will host a Zombie Pub Crawl on Oct. 23. Here are the details:

Catch the infection and join us on Olive and Wishon on October 23rd at 7:30pm! We will be meeting in the parking lot on the NW corner of Wishon and Olive.

The Fresno Zombie Pub Crawl is free. But you will need to bring ca…sh for any drinks and food you will want at the bars.

The Fresno Zombie Pub Crawl is a 21+ event so please be sure to bring your I.D. No I.D. means no bars or club – which means no crawl for you and an unhappy zombie is nothing to laugh at.

There are numerous bars or clubs in the area, and depending on the size of the Zombie Infestation we will need to split up. Have an idea of the bars you and your undead friends want to go to.

Come dressed as a zombie! No makeup will be provided.

Be inventive with your costumes. The zombie marauder does not care if it bites a fireman, nurses, football players, etc… It eats any flesh so those who have turned were most likely at work when it occurred.

There are many websites out there to help with make-up for zombies, just search the internet “Zombie make-up”.

The Tower Zombies should crawl through the FUSE Festival, which is on the same date.
