Help needed now to plan living dead sequel — Just when you thought it was safe to come out of hiding after the living impaired invaded Pauls Valley last year, it seems there are more chills in store as it is all expected to return this fall.

Still in the early planning stages, the Main Street Pauls Valley hosted Living Dead Center Festival is seeking volunteers of all brain sizes to help be a part of several committees ultimately responsible for bringing it back to Garvin County on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Led by MSPV Director Samantha Robb, those looking to get in on the fun will not only have an opportunity to enjoy activities featured at last year’s version, but even get in on all new crazy antics being added to the full day of decay.

“We’re being ambitious on what we want to include and we want to have more input,” said Robb. “I’m really excited about the response that I’m getting.”

Spots open include committees for the 5K Zombie Run where two more people are still needed to compliment three individuals who are already working on ideas, one more to help plan the third version of the zombie flash mob, two to help organize the first ever zombie parade, two more individuals for the undead fashion show, three more for the zombie prom, four more for the midnight showing of the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” as well as plenty of spots for general volunteers to handle basic tasks on the day of the event or ahead of time.

The hope is that through these separate groups no one will feel overwhelmed trying to be a part of everything and will need to be in contact with Robb as well as other group members in order to meet up for the activity’s particular planning meetings.

The ambitious ideas mean families can have more reasons to spend their money here, perhaps for the whole weekend and the entertainment expands to all ages through other additions like a kid centered fall fest called Punkinpalooza.

It’s certainly created plenty a buzz from people who are already registering to participate along the lines of runners or zombies to the Main Street facebook page.

“I want people to get creative,” said Robb. “I’ll help with all of the groups so they won’t be alone.”

As always, Robb is also looking for sponsors who can help support the festival overall or donate funds to have their name or the company they worked for featured supporting one specific activity.

She can be contacted through e-mail at or by phone at 405-238-2555.

Participation as a runner or flesh eater can be done at or by downloading the registration form at, where more info over the whole festival is also available.
