Books and braaains. Zombie-loving teens were thrilled to take part in Oshawa Public Libraries second Zombie Fest.
It was another year with full attendance at the McLaughlin branch located at 65 Bagot St. The 12 to 18-year-old brain-munching enthusiasts took part in zombie trivia, made voodoo dolls and creepy masks. They later ripped in to brain themed cupcakes and “body-part” punch.
“Those that attended the program had a good time,” said Kim O’Reilly, Manager of Children’s & Youth Services at Oshawa Public Libraries.
The event took place Aug. 9 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the auditorium, located on the library’s bottom floor, accessed through the children’s library.
Teens could register for the free event online or at any Oshawa Public Libraries branch.
Due to its popularity Zombie Fest will continue to be an annual event.
