Expanded ‘Zombie Walk’ slated for this Saturday


Somerset —

The event itself is free, although many of the vendors will be selling items during the day.
“This year, Somerset Police said we ought to make it an all-day event,” said Padgett. “Somebody may not want to bring little kids to something involving the undead, but during the day in might not be as scary.”
The Somerset Junior Women’s Club will have a “Zombie Motorcycle Ride” to benefit the Lake Cumberland Children’s Advocacy Center, with registration at 9 a.m. and start time at 10, with a cost of $10 per person including a snack and a meal, departing from the downtown judicial center.
Padgett also said that starting earlier in the day will give people time to learn the “Thriller” dance moves, with assistance from local dance studio Pep & Pizzazz.
At 8:30 p.m. Saturday, the actual zombie walk will begin, and following that, the movie will start at 9 p.m.
It’s also held the night before the premiere of the new season of the popular AMC zombie-themed TV show, “The Walking Dead,” noted Padgett. Just something to add a little more flavor to an already scary good time.
“It’s a night to get dressed up and be somebody else,” said Padgett. “It’s a good community event to gather with people just to have fun. It’s a safe event, and if you have the slightest like for scary movies, this lets you fulfill your fantasy of being a part of it.”
