The Dona Ana Arts Council presents its 4th Annual Zombie Walk.
For the past three years, the dead of Southwest New Mexico have risen up and taken over Main Street in downtown Las Cruces. This year promises to be even bigger and deader than ever, when the Dońa Ana Arts Council’s 4th Annual Zombie Walk, transforms Main Street into a virtual carnival of the dead.
Decade of the Dead Arcade will perform at 7pm, with Alma d’ Arte Charter High School’s dance performance of Thriller right before.
As in previous years, and in keeping with nationally recognized “rules” of such events, zombie attire is mandatory to be included in the Zombie Walk and all participants are asked to remain in character, communicating only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior, i.e. grunts, groans, moans and the occasional slurred call for “brains.” Those zombies who go above and beyond will be recognized after the walk, when prizes are given for “Most Original,” “Most Disgusting,” “Best Group or Couple,” and “Best Child ZOMBIE” for those under 12 years of age.
Zombies are asked to begin gathering in front of the Rio Grande Theatre at 5:45pm. The walk will take place around 6pm, along Main Street and is free to the public.
