ST. JOSEPH -- Creatures of the night lurk once again at A and G Produce in St. Joseph and it's your job to fight them off.

The Zombie Paint Shoot is in its second year, and owner Jessie Welsh says it continues to be a hit.

"You know the costumers really loved it and it was neat to see that they would get done riding it and want to do it right away again," says Welsh.

As you go into battle zombies try to over run your vehicle and it's up to you to save your comrades.

"We've made the course longer and made different scenes at the course," says Welsh. "I think the biggest thing we added was the Humvee and another army truck."

A and G Produce went through 1-million paint ball's in their first year and expect to double that this year.

A lot of work goes into a production like this and couldn't be done without the help of the zombie actors.

Employee Caleb Krush says he wanted to play a zombie after his friend did it last year.

"My friend Andrew wanted me to do it, so I just thought I would try it," says Krush.

Sean Lessard is in his second year working at A and G Produce. He says even though he knows they get hit with paint balls it's still a lot of fun.

"After the first night you kind of learn you need a lot of protection, so you just wear a bunch of pads and you're good," says Lessard.

Welsh says they are happy with the response and see it as an annual event for years to come.

"Right now I see it going for a while and every year you just see what worked or didn't and tweak it a little," says Welsh.

The Zombie Paint Shoot is open every Friday and Saturday from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. until November 1st.
