With so many zombie stories in the news lately, you may have found yourself thinking wistfully, “Gee, that sounds like fun. How do I become a zombie?”
Mapleside Farms — a visitor-oriented apple farm and restaurant in Brunswick — is offering you a shot. This year, it’s added a “Light Up the Living Dead” element to its annual weekend fall festivals. Starting September 14, visitors can come and participate in Zombie Paintball — a hayride from which they can shoot paintball guns at costumed actors portraying zombies.
But they need zombies — they forget to handcuff and hang on to Mitt Romney when he appeared at the farm in June. So they’re hosting a Zombie Job Fair — a funner distant relation to a McDonald’s job fair — to hire an undetermined number of scary creatures. It’s happening from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. next Tuesday, September 4. If you think you’ve got what it takes to lurch out from behind an apple tree and inspire a wagonful of people to douse you with paint, please come on out. For more information call 330-225-5576.
