The third annual Zombie Fest in downtown Canton is happening this weekend! We’re not sure what we’re looking forward to the most. With the what to expect list about a million miles long, we just can’t figure it out. Is it the 5K? Or the food trucks? Maybe the free showing of Scooby Doo on Zombie Island or the video game tournament? Who knows! We’ll just have to go for the entire length of the Cherokee Zombie Fest on Saturday, Oct. 17 in order to fit it all in!
Zombie Fans Unite
Whether you love the gaming, the shows, the special effects, or you’re just a festival kind of person, Zombie Fest is for you! Not only does Zombie Fest allow for the inner zombie to come out, but there is something for everyone. Even the little ones will have fun with the Little Zombies Inflatable Zone.
The Cherokee Zombie Fest and Food Truck Fair is not only great for zombie fans, but it is also a great way to help the community raise funds for Cherokee FOCUS. Cherokee FOCUS is a community organization that lives up to its name; FOCUS stands for Families of Cherokee United in Service. As evidenced on the Cherokee FOCUS website, the mission statement makes the purpose even more clear as it states, “Strengthening families, youth, and individuals through collaboration of community resources, skills, and expertise by reducing and preventing youth substance abuse, enhancing educational opportunities, and improving housing alternatives for a stronger Cherokee County.”
