Zombie Fest 2016
The Official Zombie Walk Festival, Zombie Fest, takes place just before Halloween, running from 29-30 October 2016 at Company's Garden at the centre of Cape Town.
For those not in the know, a Zombie Walk is a fun run/walk where participants are encouraged to dress up and complete the event in their scariest zombie costumes. The Cape Town Zombie Fest is also a charity walk, raising funds for the Lucky Lucy Foundation amongst other charities in need.
Having begun humbly in 2009, there were only 180 entrants, the event has grown from strength to strength. In 2015, 4500 individuals took part in the event. In 2016, organisers of the event are looking to break the Guinness World Records through hosting the largest festival of its kind.
While the myriad of costumes may be terrifying to some, the event is family-friendly (furry four-legged members are invited too!). What's more, no real blood is spilled as the cordoned off streets and ambulance on stand-by ensure that attendees are protected from any bodily harm.
Last year, the zombies shuffled for 4.5 kilometers down the streets of Cape Town. In 2016, the event will be longer, bigger and better than ever before.
The event will also feature a string of live local bands bound to get you into the spirit of the event. Other things to look forward to include a food market, beer garden, a craft market, and, of course, a best-dressed competiton.
