Zombie Night Out 2016

Main Street Bethlehem

Feeling a little sluggish, a bit wobbly, joints feeling a little stiff? Did you wake up having a hard time finding out where that odd smell was coming from?

I’m sorry to have tell you this, but you might have joined the ranks of the living dead…

That’s right, you might be… a Zombie.

But what is a Zombie to do to entertain themselves these days?

If you ran around eating people, you would most likely be hunted down and have your head removed, or your brain destroyed. Now, that does not sound like fun at all, does it?

So what are you to do, you ask?

There is safety in numbers, even for Zombies…

Mark your calendars, get all dressed up (or dressed down) for Zombie Night Out!

You heard me right. A night out on the town specifically for Zombies (and their friends)!!!
