In addition to the Hearse & Rad Rod Cruise, the Zombie Tromp Walk About will be taking place in Historic Downtown Centralia as the cars are on display. This will be the largest Halloween themed event to ever take place in Lewis County. An attempt is being made to break the world record for the most zombies gathered in one location. The current record stands at 4,026. ALL ages are welcome and every person dressed in zombie costume will count towards breaking the record. The official Zombie Tromp will start around 5pm as the zombie costume parade begins circling on Tower Avenue around the show & shine portion of the car show. For shutterbugs this will be a photo opportunity not to be missed.
All "zombies" must check in at the Jupiter Arts Center to be counted towards the record breaking attempt.
