“Wild and Woolly In The Woods”: Zombie Hike at Jefferson Memorial Forest

Monday October 1, 2012

Join the ranks of the ‘walking dead’ for a frightfully good time at “Wild and Woolly In The Woods”, at Jefferson Memorial Forest, October 13. It’s the second annual zombie hike at the forest and gets underway at 7 p.m. All attending are encouraged to wear their best zombie attire!

Celebrating 15 years of Wild and Woolly Video, this zombie bash features a trivia-filled interactive hike, a costume contest to showcase those with the best zombie costumes, prizes, giveaways, and a showing of “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie”. This 1974 R-rated zombie cult classic was chosen by Wild and Woolly staff especially for this anniversary event.

“It’s one of our all-time favorite movies and was one of the first movies we ever had at the store,” said Wild and Woolly owner Todd Brashear. “At the time, it was really hard to find and we rented it a lot. It seemed like a good choice for this event: a zombie movie that was part of our early history, but also somewhat obscure, which is what we’ve built our reputation on.”

After a nighttime hike, a movie, games, and contests, satisfying a zombie’s appetite is no small task, but fortunately there will be plenty of refreshments available for purchase, including local crafted beer by BBC, and fresh gourmet tacos and other food items from Taco Punk.

“Wild and Woolly In The Woods” is free, but parking is $5. No outside food or beverages are permitted. Zombies and guests must be 18 or older to participate.
