PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Zombies will be invading the Statehouse on Wednesday, all in an effort to encourage smokers to finally kick their habit.
The Department of Health and other anti-smoking organizations put the event together. It’s inspired by a similar anti-tobacco campaign in London. The volunteers dressed as zombies will be walking examples of the effects of tobacco-related diseases, and will be handing out resource guides on how to quit.
The zombies will be escorted from the Statehouse to Kennedy Plaza by Providence Police, where they will drive home their anti-smoking message.
