Local Happenings – Night of the Rocking Dead

Thriller dance 1

Zombie themes have become very popular in the last couple of years. With movies like Zombieland, shows like The Walking Dead and books like World War Z, zombies have become a common interest among many Americans. This year, even more campus organizations are teaming together to put on what has become an annual CWU spectacular. The Zombie Bash has only grown and this year, The ‘Burg is going to help take the event to a whole new level.zombiezone1

The Zombie Bash will be made up of about ten activities, all free and all open to the public. Participants will be given the opportunity to take part in a zombie themed 5K, zombie shooting gallery, freaky photo booths and more. The Zombie Zone will be in the recreation center and will give students the chance to run and shoot at real live (well, dead) zombies! There will also be a humans vs. zombies jousting tournament in an inflatable ring as well as a creepy carnival.

So what’s The ‘Burg’s part? We will be hosting The Rocking Dead, zombie dance. Expect an 11-foot DJ booth guard tower, a fenced in dance floor and spine-chilling music to complete the mood. Don’t have the perfect zombie outfit? No problem, make-up artists will be on-site to help you look your worst!download

The event is open to the public but be warned, there will be extreme images! The whole she-bang starts at 8 p.m. Saturday, November 2 and will continue until 1 a.m. All activities will be held in the SURC.

Keep an eye out for zombies walking through campus, alerts on The ‘Burg’s airwaves and zombie survival tips on our Facebook and Twitter. For more information on the event and a full list of sponsors check out the CWU event calendar online.
