Zombies will rise from the Earth and creep down Broad Street later this month. But it may surprise a lot of people to discover what these not-NOTLD Promo Photoso-dead ghouls are coming to find. Instead of hunting for human flesh, these zombies will be on the prowl for cold, hard cash.

The public is encouraged to transform into the living dead and take a shot at the top prize of $150 for the best zombie attire. Second and third place receive $75 and $50, respectively. DJ Mikey J will be the master of ceremonies for the costume contest. The evening also features a buffet dinner of ghoulish delights and a screening of “Night of the Living Dead.” A cash bar will also be available.

“We are so grateful to Sybil Katona and everyone at Cinema & Drafthouse for hosting this event for us,” said Mary Malone, Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce president. “It's really going to give people a chance to have a fun night out and win some cool cash prizes.
