“I’m passionate about two things, zombies and helping my community. The Des Moines Zombie Walk brings out those creative and kind citizens and gives them a time to shine, or ooze depending on how you look at it,” said Gary Wickering, walk organizer. “It’s sure to be a day everyone looks forward to each year as we continue to infect more and more kind-hearted, tasty brained Iowans.”
Prepare for all day bloody fun with the Zombie “Bizarre” kicking off at 11 AM. Come down early and get your makeup done, browse the vendors, play some games, listen to some music, and have some food and drinks.
Start and ending at Zombie Burger, the stumbling begins at 5:30 PM. Zombies will make one stop at Nollen Plaza for a group photo and then continue through Court Ave. and back through the East Village to Zombie Burger. Stick around and keep the fun going.
