It seems over 170 people have signed up on Facebook alone for Friday's downtown Zombie Crawl.
Everyone is invited to attend - even those who don't regularly visit social networking sites.
However it's not just a walk through town, but a string of live-action, historical, and downtown exploring events.
The City of Youngstown - The Oakland Center for the Arts - The Mahoning Valley Historical Society invites all the interested and curious to the...
FIRST ANNUAL YOUNGSTOWN ZOMBIE CRAWL!!!!
here is the lowdown:
Meet at the uber-historic and cool Oak Hill Cemetery / local make-up artists will be onsite with Zombie make-up $5 / The Mahoning Valley Historical Society will be giving organizing tours of the Cemetery.
Zombies and all interested parties will gather at the Mr. Peanut Bridge. (red bridge connecting downtown to the Commons)
All zombies in attendance will saunter over the Mr. Peanut Bridge to West Federal Street and beyond, creating mayhem in the streets. (note: for eating purposes, the YBI has a high concentration of brains in the vicinity)
