Starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, the Zombie 5K challenges runners to test their endurance and survival skills on an obstacle-laced course infested with zombies. Each runner is outfitted with flags that signify their health, and if they lose all of their flags, then they become a zombie themselves. The goal is to follow your instincts and make your own way from the starting line to the finish line with at least one flag intact. All runners receive a racing bib and medal to signify whether they survived the race, and the top finishers are eligible for prizes and free admission to the postrace party.
The Haunted Cottage
Though spectral forms and shadowy figures still reside in The Haunted Cottage, its greatest legacy is as the occasional vacation home of assassin John Wilkes Booth. Also known as the Booth House, The Haunted Cottage is home to paranormal researcher Vince Wilson, who helms the haunted abode's ghost tours and maintains the paranormal library and history museum, where guests can spy a vampire skeleton among other supernatural exhibits. All this knowledge pours from Vince's mouth during tours and investigations, which pair breakdowns of the house's 200-year history with actual equipment designed to catch ghosts, from cameras and digital recorders to EMF meters.
The Haunted Cottage also strives to school spirit-seekers with paranormal-research training that cycles through parapsychology topics such as extrasensory perception, hypnosis, and psychic healing.
