SAVE THE DATE! We’ve heard that the Zombies are returning! Mark your calendar for Friday and Saturday, October 6 and 7, for Altoona’s second annual all-out weekend of zombies, live music, vendors, activities, games and more.
The zombies come to life for the official kickoff of ZombieTown USA on Friday, October 6, with a Blood Frenzy blood drive hosted by the American Red Cross, followed by a concert at the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum. Join “PennterA” for a full night of music by the headlining PanterA tribute band and local opening band, Small Town Horror Show.
Festivities continue on Saturday, October 7, with the second annual Zombie Fun Run through downtown Altoona’s streets and alleys, followed by Altoona’s first ever (as far as we know) Halloween parade. Zombies and monsters are all invited to take part in this special, open-to-everyone parade. So start working on your ugliest costume, foulest float, most dreadful monster marching routines, and noisiest band arrangements for this outrageous event. To save a space for YOUR entry, contact email@example.com.
Our zombie-themed vendors, dark art exhibit curated by 321 Gallery, safe zones and other activities return on Saturday, providing an immersive experience for families in downtown Altoona. The experience will be capped off with an adult-oriented concert at Heritage Plaza. The Altoona Mirror and City Beverage Present Agent Smith as “Agent in Chains” an Alice in Chains tribute followed by Black Sun.
Come in your worst zombie look. Bring your friends, family, and neighbors.
