LANSING, Michigan (WILX) – There’s lots of Halloween fun going on 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 30th, 2021 and registration begins at 4:00 p.m. at the Lansing Center by Exhibition Hall C.

Hikers must PURCHASE TICKETS to enter, and undead of all ages are welcome. Presale prices are only $ 5 each and your whole horde can enter with a “Buy five, get one for free” ??? hand out. Your ticket includes entry to How-To Halloween and entry to the competition before the legendary walk begins. Children under 3 years of age enter free and there is a small eTix fee for all online sales. The ticket price increases to USD 10 on the day of the hike and is available at the box office.

Zombies who bring donations to the Greater Lansing Food Bank will be entered into a drawing for a prize package worth US $ 100. The Walking Dead are invited to the main stage at 5:00 p.m. to take part in our Best Zombie Contest (with categories for adults and children) for a total prize package worth over $ 200. Thereafter, the horde members receive instructions before they are unleashed on the unsuspecting citizens. Traffic will stall as we slowly make our way to the Capitol steps for the most terrifying photo shoot Mid-Michigan has ever seen.
