Hello, and welcome to Eureka Springs. October is the perfect month to visit our quaint little town, because we love Halloween more than most anything in the world. You'll see that just driving around –– be sure to take self-guided tour of the historic district, where you'll find some of the best Halloween decorations in town.

We celebrate Halloween all month long, but the biggest event of the month is the Zombie Crawl. Slated for Saturday, Oct. 26, the Zombie Crawl brings thousands of people to town to shuffle down Spring Street in an undead horde. The costumes, makeup and atmosphere make the Zombie Crawl one of the best events of the year. It's not just about the crawl –– it's an all-day event in downtown Eureka Springs, featuring a Thriller dance class, makeup tutorials and a zombie-themed market. You don't want to miss it.

If you don't like being scared, stop by the Voices from Eureka's Silent City living history cemetery tour Oct. 17-19 and Oct. 25-26 at the Eureka Springs Cemetery. The walking tour highlights the stories of former residents of Eureka Springs. Trust us, there's a lot to learn about our town. The best part about the tour? All proceeds benefit Eureka Springs Historical Museum, one of our favorite nonprofits in Eureka Springs.

Whatever you do while you're here, we hope you enjoy it and come back soon!
