Moundsville is the home to the former WV Penitentiary.
Each October the former prison serves as the backdrop for a very scary haunted house called Dungeon of Horrors. To kick it off our town along with the WV Pen Tours hosted it's first ever Zombie Walk.
The day began with a street fair complete with craft booths, food vendors, face paintings and games for the kids. Fun for everyone!

At 6 p.m. the Zombies arose and began the trek through town to their final destination (WV Pen) where they performed a Zombie flash mob dance to the "Thriller" song by Michael Jackson.
The crowd was huge and even though we were standing on a little knoll in front of the Mound we still weren't able to see very well.
I scrambled around trying to find a spot to get a good picture of the dance but none could be found. In the end I had lots of pictures of the crowd,
a few of the Mound,
sun setting behind the mound
and of course the WV Pen.
A fun experience for the community but I sure hope next year they can come up with an idea for better crowd control so that all can get a better view.
