The Howe Police Department will be hosting a unique Texoma Night Out on Saturday night, Oct. 5 from 2:30 p.m. until dark and the public is invited.
The Big Sky Boys, a local band, will be performing live inside the Howe Fire Department, while Texas Soul BBQ will be serving free barbeque dinners to those in attendance.
“Along with music, food, vendors, a bounce house, door prizes, and silent auction, we are hosting a Zombie Costume Contest and Zombie Walk”, said Howe Police Chief Carl Hudman. “Howe has always put on a great Texoma Night Out event, and we want to continue with that tradition.”
Registration for the Zombie Costume contest begins at 1:45 p.m. There will be a “Best Zombie” selected by members of the Grayson County Law Enforcement Caravan after they arrive at 2:40 p.m., while the main contest judging will begin between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. The event is free and there will be trophies and prizes for the top three zombies in each age group (5-12, 13-17, and 18-and-up).
Hudman said that if a sufficient number of zombies make it to the event, they will videotape contestants as they perform their best zombie walk down the streets to Michael Jackson’s Thriller soundtrack.
On Saturday, Haning Street will be closed down between Hughes and Denny for vendors, costume contest and kids events.
“Our sponsors, the Howe police officers and firefighters, and our volunteer event committee have worked hard preparing this event for the citizens of Howe. It is a great opportunity for folks to meet their public safety and elected officials, and a way to get to know them just a little” Hudman said.
