When asked about what prompted Maker House to throw a zombie themed barbecue, Executive Director, Vanessa Ford, stated “It’s important to think total ecosystem when throwing an event like this. By holding a barbecue, our human guests can feast on the barbecue, and our undead guests can feast on the humans. It’s the circle of life, or well, at least the circle of undeath.”
Matt Rios, Program Director at Maker House, adds “We felt it was important to include a severed limb toss, because the severed limbs of your fallen comrades may be the only thing you have to fend off the horde of the undead. Remember, practice makes perfect and accuracy matters.”
While a pageant of the undead may seem a rather daunting undertaking (how does one choreograph those opening numbers without falling victim to thrashing arms grabbing you and sucking out your grey matter?), pageant organizer Tony Ford says “I think zombie pageants will soon be sweeping the nation. There’s nothing quite so graceful as the lurching of the undead in the moonlight. There will be no zombie twerking though. This is a family production.”
The event is free and open to the public. Free parking in the Franklin lot, right across the street from Maker House.
