Annual Zombie Walk Invades Lansing Saturday

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Halloween may be more than one month away, but don't be surprised if you see a bunch of zombies staggering around in downtown Lansing.

The fourth annual Zombie Walk is Saturday, September 28.

The walk runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Adado River Front Park.

Steven Ward, Founder of Lansing Zombie Walk run says he loves zombies. "You cant organize a zombie walk without loving zombies," said Ward.

More than 250 people go all out with their costumes, fake blood and everything in between.

Zombie experts say that it's best to use red icing color when achieving the gory look. It's believable, realistic and it achieves that horrifying scare. With a little mangled skin, sunken eyes and bloody teeth, you're ready for the zombie apocalypse.

The walk is also a charity event that will benefit the downtown Lansing Womens Center.

"There's a lot of ladies who live down there in that shelter that need help. So the more people we can get, the better we can do for them. But the point is the charity, not the show, the show is just for fun," said ward.

The walk will have activities for kids including obstacle courses and sack races. Participants are encouraged to dress in zombie attire but are also welcomed to walk, run or drag as a zombie in regular attire.
