Spookiest Small Towns: Zombies on the March in Alabama
They kill for food, and they're coming for us: Zombie parades are the new pirate parties, and the ghouls lurch among the good folk of Gadsden, Alabama on Saturday, October 18.
The Gadsden Public Library takes on larger and better-made-up parades in San Francisco and Helsinki with the 4th Annual Zombie Parade, to be followed by a marathon of zombie movies from the family-friendly ("Fido") to the cutting-edge consumerist critique ("Dawn of the Dead"). Don't go into that mall!
Get your head together before Halloween by devising the perfect costume and amassing at 3:30 pm in the parking lot of the Pitman Theatre, which will spend all the proceeds from the zombieathon on restoration. Ah, small towns: Even their brain-eating is for a good cause.
