CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) – Out on the outskirts of Conway, contagion has spread, the dead are walking, and the only safe house left in the country has been compromised. Through the emergency exit, you’re left with no choice but to jump on a ride through the woods with nothing but the weapons you’re given and your own fear.

Paintball Arkansas Zombie Hunt has opened for its second year and offers a frightful ride on the Zombie Annihilation Vehicle, 100 rounds of glow-in-the-dark ammo, and a tour through a labyrinth of horrors. The 25 to 30 minute tour is $25 per person and includes all of the above plus sideshow acts by PaulPrater.com.

Thursday was opening night and tours run to Nov. 8 on Thursdays through Saturdays. Gates open at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m. Lyon College will host “An Evening of Classical Music of India” in the Bevens Music Room in Brown Chapel. Free of charge to the campus and Batesville community, the concert will feature Ustad Imrat Khan on the sitar, Ustad Shafaat Khan on the tabla and Belinda Tracey on the tambura.

Lyon mathematics professor Joseph Stover, who also plays the sitar, is enthusiastic about the concert.

“I will definitely attend the concert and can hardly contain my excitement!” Stover said. “Ustad Imrat Khan is a very well-known musician within the tradition of classical Hindustani music.”

With a career spanning more than half a century and more than two dozen recorded albums, Khan is inarguably one of the giants of Indian classical music. Besides Khan’s pure talent, listeners can look forward to a unique musical experience rich in history.
