Halloween Party welcomes zombies, vampires and ghouls to Pember

Friday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m.—GRANVILLE, N.Y.—With Halloween just around the corner, the Pember Library and Museum and the Slate Valley Museum (SVM) are teaming up to host the third annual Halloween Party and Zombie Walk. “Zombie Walk III” will take place during the October First Friday event, Oct. 7, 7-9 p.m. at both museums.
“Last year’s Zombie Walk was such a huge hit with over 400 people turning out, and we are excited to host it again,” said Krista Rupe, Slate Valley Museum’s executive director. “This year’s event promises to be even more amazing with an expanded lineup at both museums. In addition to a longer zombie parade route, there will be a Zombie Ball, spooky jack o’lanterns, Halloween art, music, treats, special décor and other terrifying surprises.”
At the Pember, zombies can feast on “finger” sandwiches, jelly eyeballs, wormy hot dogs, bloody punch, and other delicacies of the undead. Eerie characters will roam the library and a video of ghouls on screen will be projected in the library crypt. Make-up stations will be available so participants can get help to look their worst.
“Zombies are a growing presence in the region and demographics are indicating that they will soon rule the world,” said Pember pollster Rob McGuire. “If you are a Zombie or would like to train as one, you owe it to your future to show up on the 7th. It will be a night to die for.”
At SVM there will be a monster mash with dancing to the most haunting songs around. The museum will host a Spooky Jack O’Lantern contest with prizes. Carved pumpkins can be dropped off at the museum from Oct. 5-7, 1-5 p.m.
Festivities start out at the Pember at 7 p.m. and continue at SVM at 8 p.m. after the Zombie Walk down Main Street.
Pember Library and Museum is located at 33 West Main St., Granville, N.Y. Slate Valley Museum is located at 17 Water Street, Granville, N.Y. For more info, visit
