Halloween draws out the most fun, most scary, and most weird things. Last night was not such a good time to go downtown, unless you like taking the risk of your life at the Reno Nevada Zombies Crawl. It just may be the last thing you could cross off your bucket list, for you may not make it out alive.

Nevada is haunted enough with ghosts without having thousands of zombies wandering around free. To make it even more scary, these zombies carry around a cup. What is the cup for? Well, you see, this is the annual event when Reno Nevada zombies crawl from bar to bar to party and drink booze. Now, can you imagine being in a town at night among drunk zombies? I am sure all our resident ghosts get a huge kick out of this.

This is the tenth year the event has been held and the organizers expected a huge turnout of zombies. Reno Nevada zombies people claim to be famous, drawing nearly 20,000 zombie lovers from around the world. I find that rather odd, since I have lived in Reno since early 1996 and never heard of this event. I am sure those who get involved have a lot of fun, some have too much fun! This year there were twenty-two arrests. Our police force is busy enough without having to mess with drunk zombies. How does one safely arrest a zombie, anyway?

I would not be caught dead attending the Reno Nevada Zombies Crawl – of course, if I were dead, it might be the place to be around Halloween time. But, let me ask you a question here. How would one know if all those people are just wearing costumes, or if some of them are really zombies? This I do not ever plan on finding out. No thanks!

However, for those who like this kind of thing, you might want to attend the Reno Nevada Zombies Crawl.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    We actually have the same event here in Adelaide each year, and my sons have partaken in this crazy Zombie gathering. Some of the makeup and costumes are so realistic, no-one dare go out to witness. Its a great event. Cheers!

      It must be fun for those who like it. Some participants are very artistic with makeup and costumes. Thanks, Tony. Take care.
