Zombie Walk El Paso

Thursday October 23, 2008
If you’re looking to get out of your house this weekend, consider walking around El Paso aimlessly with the undead at the third annual Zombie Walk El Paso.Zombie Walk El Paso

Don’t worry, it’s all for the fun and love of zombies. These zombies moan and groan for brain and flesh, but don’t actually satiate their gory appetites.

The walk starts at about 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at downtown El Paso’s San Jacinto Plaza. Where the zombies will travel is anyone’s guess, but it’s sure to be weird and fun.


Early Voting in El Paso

Tuesday October 21, 2008

This is great news for a city known for its apathetic voters. Obviously, the presidential race is the main reason many voters are flocking to their polling sites, but how many of you know about the more than 10 other local races? (That doesn’t even include the small school-district races.)
