Cynthiana preps for ‘The Walking Dead’ Day

CYNTHIANA, Ky. (WTVQ)- The dead are taking over a small, central Kentucky community this weekend and it’s expected between 5,000 and 30,000 people could be there.

It’s no secret the connection Cynthiana has to ‘The Walking Dead’ is strong. The graphic novel, turned hit TV show was created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore was the original artist. Both men are from there.

This weekend, organizers say for the first and only time, they’ll host a ‘The Walking Dead’ Day celebration in downtown Cynthiana.

“There’s all kind of excitement. People are scared, but they’re also just so happy for the community it’s just a fun time,” says one woman.

The celebration includes Q & A sessions with Kirkman and Moore, among other things.

“This little town really needs this,” says one business owner. She runs the Cozy Cottage, a beauty salon and the winner of the decorating contest. Her shop features mannequins of many of the characters from TWD.
