Dawn of the Downtown Dead – 8th Annual Raleigh Zombie Walk
Updated: Nov 10, 2019
The dead walk the Earth! On Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. in Nash Square, the Raleigh Zombie Walk will shamble their way through the streets, terrorizing those innocent civilians unprepared for ghoulish fun. The event is free, family friendly, and lasts roughly an hour and a half. If you’re looking for a fun photo op, a Thriller flash mob, and/or the opportunity to freak out pedestrians, you’ll find the Raleigh Zombie Walk offers that and more.
If your undead makeup skills aren’t ready for the runway, you can contact Savi Swiggard for a $5-$10 zombie glam at (919) 522-3357. Her services include dripping flesh, edible blood, ghastly wounds and all makeup works for sensitive skin and is latex-free.
As you prepare to stumble through downtown, remember to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a jacket for chilly weather. The Herald recommends making a thrift store run for cheap clothes you won't mind ripping and tearing for the ultimate easy zombie look. If you're looking to be your own zombie MUA, check out Hughie and Louie's Costume shop on Creedmoor Road.
