Des Moines Zombie Walk

Des Moines Zombie Walk 2016

Can you hear the SCREAMS in the distance?

The call for"BRAINS!!!"getting louder?The zombie horde is approaching and is calling for you to join them.

 

On October 8th come and join the horde as they terrorize the streets of Des Moines. Or perhaps you want to help keep them in line with the Anti-Zombie Militia? The Bazaar starts at 11 AM and will have all of the delightful pieces you need to become the perfect zombie. Face painting, fake blood, the Artist's Alley, and a costume contest. But this can only satisfy the needs of the undead for so long. At 2 PM the zombies are released on the unsuspecting city of Des Moines. The walk will go down the busy streets of downtown all the way to Court Avenue, and back up to 5th Street before returning to the our presenting sponsors at Zombie Burger. 

 

But the party does not end there. When the walk ends, the hunger for brains does not stop. Our friends at the Underground Rock Shop invite all, undead and still living, to come to the Zombie Walk afterparty concert. Four local bands will be on the stage from 5-9 PM to help raise money for the Zombie Walk.
