LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Lots of Halloween fun is happening in Lansing this weekend.

Lock your doors and board up the windows! The 11th Annual Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk returns with a special Devil’s Night edition on Saturday October 30, 2021, and registration starts at 4pm inside the Lansing Center by Exhibit Hall C.

Walkers must PURCHASE TICKETS to participate, and all ages of the undead are welcome. Advance prices are only $5 each, and your whole horde can enter with a “buy five, get one free” deal. Your ticket includes admission into How-To Halloween along with contest entry before the legendary walk begins. Kids under 3 get in for free, and a small eTix fee will apply to all online sales. The ticket price increases to $10 on the day of the walk, and are available for purchase at the box office.

Zombies that bring donations for the Greater Lansing Food Bank will be entered in a drawing for a prize pack worth $100. The walking dead are invited on the main stage to compete in our Best Zombie Contest at 5pm (with adult and kid categories) for a total prize package valued at over $200. Afterwards, the horde members will be given instructions before being unleashed on the unsuspecting citizens. Traffic will come to a stand still as we slowly make our way to the steps of the Capitol for the most amazingly horrific photo shoot that Mid-Michigan has ever seen.

Just down the road is the Carnival of Creatives.
