Native Americans once told of a mysterious natural healing spring in the Arkansas Ozarks. Spanish explorers scoured this area seeking the elusive “Fountain of Youth”. And in the 19th century, the town of Eureka Springs with its amazing healing springs grew to be a world-renowned Victorian health resort. Partaking freely of the water, scores of visitors regained health and vitality, apparently cured of their many ills. From blindness to baldness, from piles to paralysis, the curative power of pure Ozark spring water and fresh mountain air seemed to know no limits. But it never raised the dead…UNTIL NOW.
On November 2, 2012 - the Day of the Dead - Eureka Springs will host its first annual Zombie Crawl & Day of the Dead Parade. The event is free and open to everyone. A creeping parade procession of funeral hearses, doomsday vehicles, Halloween floats, and post-mortem street performers will lead the hungry horde of the undead. Zombie participants are only asked to bring two (or more) cans of food to benefit the Flint Street Food Bank. We are currently seeking zombies for the crawl, and zombie-themed vehicles, Day of the Dead floats, and street performers for the parade.
