OK, I’m outing myself as a Halloween-o-phile. I’ve been thinking about this for a couple months.
If we want to get NIU students, local teens and hip families downtown, DeKalb should host a zombie walk during Halloween weekend. Locate zombie headquarters at the Egyptian Theatre to tie into its Amenti Haunted House, and develop fabulous downtown discounts for people dressing the part. Recruit bands to play “Thriller” and “Monster Mash.”
If this idea has legs (and/or braynz), remember where you heard it first. ;-)
