Zombie culture enthusiasts and observers rejoice!
On Saturday, September 20th Asheville’s newest riverfront concert and event space, the Salvage Station, will become a mecca for zombie apocolypse victims and revelers. The all-day FREE event is the official after-party for Asheville's Zombie Float and will feature parking, food trucks, local brews and music from DJ Molly Parti, Lyric and The Krektones.
If you live in Asheville, or have a pulse on living-dead culture (pun intended), you've probably heard about the “Tube-ocalypse: Zombie Float and World Record Attempt!” organized by local non-profit Western North Carolina Alliance and French Broad Riverkeeper. The event is an effort to beat Portland’s 2013 record for having a 620-person chain of tubers float down the Willamette River. Since there are currently over 2.4k people RSVP’d for the French Broad River event on the official "Tube-ocalypse: Zombie Float and World Record Attempt!" Facebook event page, we think Asheville has a pretty good shot at crushing that record.
Participants, friends, gawkers and supporters are invited to start their river adventure at the Salvage Station - an official parking destination and river let-off site. Festivities will begin at 9:30 am with DJ Molly Parti and an AM coffee truck. Other food trucks confirmed for later in the day include Melt Your Heart, Doc Brown’s BBQ and The Low Down.
Salvage Station is located at 665 Riverside Drive along the French Broad River in Asheville, NC. Visit the Salvage Station's Facebook Page to stay up-to-date about upcoming events.
