The Glenville State College Science Fiction and Fantasy Guild is the largest organization on campus. All month, it's hosting many Halloween activities, and one of them was Wednesday's zombie walk down Main Street.
Before the walk started, Glenville mayor Tashua Allman-Duval and some members of the guild provided zombie makeup for participants.
In past years, the turnout for the walk hadn't been as big as desired, so Allman-Duval decided to change it up a bit.
"For the past couple years, I've seen them come downtown maybe 20 students or so.. and I thought how great would it be if we could get the whole community out so what we've done this year is it's all the students and we also opened it up to the community and we've turned it into a food drive, so we're asking people to come and bring canned food and all the food we collect will go to our local food bank" said Allman-Duval.
Community members brought canned food donations to the walk, which were placed into shopping carts being pushed by the zombies. The donations will be taken to Gilmer County Community Resources Incorporated.
After their walk down Main Street, the participants performed a "Thriller Flash Mob" to Michael Jackson's "Thriller"
Glenville's Trick or Treat is coming up on October 31, and Allman-Duval is planning some other events as well.
"Glenville Trick or Treat will be on Wednesday October 31st, Halloween night, from 6 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. At the same time we'll have a "Main Street Monster Mash" where we're going to have different vendors set up in the town park. So people who don't necessarily live in town to give out treats can come downtown and see the kids in their costumes and we're going to a costume contest and a little party in the park for the kids" Allman-Duval said.
