Downtown Lakeland is being invaded on October 13 by the living dead: ZombieFest is here!

The Downtown Lakeland Partnership is celebrating World Zombie Day by hosting ZombieFest in downtown Lakeland on Oct. 13 from 5-10 p.m. Come dressed for the part as a zombie or a zombie hunter, just remember to leave the weapons at home. Admission is free to everyone who attends.  

There will be product and food vendors similar to other events hosted in downtown Lakeland. If you would like to become a vendor, the fee is $50.

Scare zones, live music, and makeup artists to get you “zombified” are only part of the fun that will already be at ZombieFest. New events are being added all the time, so keep an eye out on the website and the Facebook event page for Downtown Lakeland’s ZombieFest.

ZombieFest also needs tons of volunteers! You’ll get to work in shifts so that you can enjoy the event, too. Volunteers will receive a tshirt and access to free refreshments all night in the volunteer lounge. Who can pass up good food?

Tshirts will be available for pre-order soon- watch for details on www.downtownlakelandzombies.com.

Become a volunteer and get a free shirt or join as a sponsor and create your own company zombie!
