All About the Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl
What to Expect
One of the town’s favorite events, the Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl is the perfect spooky celebration of Halloween. Join or watch as a creeping parade of zombies, funeral hearses, Halloween floats, doom buggies, and scary street performers make their way down historic Spring Street. You’ll see everything from fake blood and brains to hair-raising street acts and post-mortem mimes.
You can dress up and join the parade yourself or enjoy the frightening site from the sidelines. Zombies and spectators of all ages are welcome. If you need help putting together the perfect zombie look, there will be makeup artists available in the Basin Park before the parade begins!
When & Where
The 7th Annual Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl takes place on Saturday, October 27th, 2018. The line-up begins at 5:00 p.m. and the parade starts at 6:30 p.m. The parade begins at the Eureka Springs Public Library and ends at Basin Spring Park.
