With sought-after haunts, legends of the paranormal, a long-standing Rocky Horror Show tradition, and many family-friendly fall activities, the Delaware River Towns is the ultimate Halloween destination. This year, in addition to the popular Frenchtown Zombie Walk, the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau is adding to the jam-packed Halloween agenda with the debut Lambertville & New Hope Zombie Crawl on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
Frenchtown will host their annual Zombie Crawl and Borough Parade from 1pm to 6pm. Start your crawl in Frenchtown. Zombies in need of a little face lift, can head to Sunbeam Park by the river starting at 1pm to have themselves done over before or after they register for the crawl and head off in search of brains for prizes. Registration is $10 per zombie; $5 additional for make up.
Frenchtown also will be the epicenter for a River Town Radio Theater performance of War of the Worlds starting at 7pm. Stay tuned for details on location.
Down river, zombies come to life in Lambertville – New Hope at the one-of-a-kind two-state zombie crawl. Zombies will cross the Delaware River, kicking off from the former site of River Horse Brewery on Lambert Lane in Lambertville and continuing across the bridge to the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope. Upon arrival, the zombies will unleash their mad moves as part of a Michael Jackson Thriller dance party.
Stylists from Zanya Spa Salon will be on hand to provide Zombie makeover at the staging area in Lambertville starting at 4:30pm. Zombies will need to begin lining up at 5pm to step off at 5:30pm to Crawl the Streets of Lambertville.
Plus, the cast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show from the Bucks County Playhouse will award prizes to the best costumes. To participate, arrive zombified in Lambertville at 5pm. Cost to participate is a $10 donation per family.
On the day of the Zombie Crawl, OWowCow Ice Cream in Lambertville will off all zombies a free “bloody” topping with any purchase of a cup of ice cream.
