Fayetteville getting set to celebrate Halloween

October 13, 2012 by  

As the scary season fast approaches, there will be all sorts of weird, wonderful, and even wicked goings-on in Fayetteville. One highlight, which is sure to gain a lot of attention, is the Fayetteville Zombie Walk.

Now in its third year, the annual event will see many ghastly ghouls and goblins, zoned-out zombies, and bewitching beastlies come to town. In 2011, hundreds of the walking dead hit the streets and, with poster and flyer printing set to roll into action, this year’s event could be even bigger. As part of the city’s monthly Fourth Friday events, there will be a host of other entertainment on offer too.

Live music performances will be happening all over, as will a number of dance troupes. Each will probably be putting on a scary show, while the Airborne Aerial Artists will evoke their own gasps, no doubt. The fun starts from 6:00 pm and runs through 10:00 pm.

The Zombie Walk itself is set to get under way at 8:00 pm, starting off at the Headquarters Library on Maiden Lane. From there, it works along Ray Avenue and Hay Street, coming to an end on Green Street, where the Rock Shop concert stage will be.

Another popular event is set to be the Haunted Hayride, being presented by the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival. An hour long spooky journey on a haycart, brave riders will be taken through downtown Fayetteville to encounter eerie experiences and haunted happenings. Complete with a 10-minute walking tour too, it is sure to be a great family trip and another part of a frightening Fayetteville October.
