Moon over Walmart

OK, "Twilight Saga" fans, Walmart stores in Amarillo and Canyon will host Twilight-themed parties late Friday night.

The parties will open the Walmart "Twilight Saga Shops" and coincide with the DVD release of the series' latest film, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

The release parties are set for 11 p.m. at Walmarts at:

-- 4610 S. Coulter St., Amarillo
-- 3700 East Interstate 40, Amarillo
-- 4215 Canyon Drive, Amarillo
-- 5730 W. Amarillo Blvd., Amarillo
-- 1701 N. 23rd St., Canyon

Information from the mega-chain shows that Walmart plans giveaways for the first 100 people in line at party locations. Some stores also will have more giveaways in Twilight trivia contests.

And of course, there will be merchandise. Lots and lots of merchandise. After all, that's Walmart's biz.

To find out more, check out Walmart's Twilight page. The site also features movie trailers "especially made for those fans that prefer to watch more scenes with their favorite vampires' or favorite wolves' scenes.
