Zombies are taking over. The biggest show on TV is about zombies. There are books out about how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Last fall, the Hannibal Jaycees sponsored a hugely successful Zombie Run. And this weekend, zombies will be crawling from pub to pub in downtown Hannibal.

The Zombie Pub Crawl will be Saturday, April 13 in downtown Hannibal, starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple (nothing says romance quite like dressing up together as the undead). Ticket holders will get their first drink for half price at nine participating bars, and will get a zombie t-shirt. Participating businesses on the Zombie Pub Crawl include:

  • Rumor Has It
  • Kerley's Pub
  • Main Street Wine Stoppe
  • Mug Shots
  • Sportsman's
  • Rookies
  • Billiards
  • Down Under
  • Broadway Bar

Rumor Has It will sponsor a zombie costume contest at 11 p.m. and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 zombies. To help those that are not sure how to put together a zombie costume, the crew from the Hannibal Jaycees Haunted House will offer to assist for a small donation - $5 for standard zombie, $8 for deluxe zombie - beginning at 5 p.m. at Rumor Has It.

Costumes are not required to participate in the Zombie Pub Crawl. If you're interested, tickets are available at Rumor Has It, 125 North Main in Hannibal.
