The 13th Annual Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk is Saturday October 7, 2023 with registration starting at 4pm. Arrive early to enjoy the festivities at How-To Halloween, and then compete in the Best Zombie Contest at 5pm. Afterwards, we’ll take our first group photo and you’ll receive final instructions from the zombie leaders. The horde will then lumber out to the streets and strike fear in the hearts of onlookers as they slowly make their way towards the Capitol. The spectacle continues as we gather on the landmark steps for the most amazingly horrific photo shoot that Mid-Michigan has ever seen.
All ages of the undead are invited! Whether you're one of the walking dead, a horror character, zombie hunter or an unlucky victim, everyone is welcome. The event is about as family friendly as a zombie walk can be, but might not be suitable for the squeamish.
Entry Into The Biohazard Zone
Warning! Z-Walkers must PURCHASE TICKETS to participate. The advance ticket price is $5 each, and kids 4 & under walk for free. The ticket price increases to $10 on the day of the walk, and are available for purchase at the How-To Halloween tent (located near the Riverwalk Theatre entrance). Please note that Eventbrite service fees add $2.18 to the online price (because all ticket sites are grave robbers).
BYOB (Bring Your Own Brains)
Be sure to be fully “zombified” when you arrive, and please bring donations in support of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Don’t forget your wallets to shop at the vendor booths and to purchase some official merch. Kids 13 and under can participate in trick-or-treating at dozens of stations.
Get entered in a drawing for a bloodcurdling bag of prizes worth $100 by dropping off your nonperishable food items for the Greater Lansing Food Bank at the How-To Halloween tent when you arrive. We are also giving away a total prize package valued at over $200 in our Best Zombie Contest with adult and kid categories.
Parking During The Apocalypse
There are many of public parking lots in the downtown area, but we recommend finding a nearby spot at a meter because it’s free to park all weekend long.
