A perfect zombie day in Denver -- unlive it up tomorrow!

Categories: Paranormal

There are a lot of zombie events in Denver this month, but the lineup on Saturday, October 19, takes the cake. If there's a single day to celebrate your love of the living dead, this is the one. From morning to late at night, there's something undead happening pretty much all the time. To help you get the most out of tomorrow, we've worked out an itinerary that will keep you covered in gore and feeding on the living 24/7, making for a perfect zombie day.

Getting up in time to make the 9 a.m. start of the Organ Trail adventure race is likely to leave you feeling like death warmed over, but that should only help you get in character. It's too late to preregister, so if you didn't already take care of that, just show up at Skyline Park with your zombie pals as a team and hope for the best. You'll get some clues, solve some zombie-themed challenges, and run around town causing onlookers to wonder why the hell your head is bleeding like that and how you're still alive with all your guts hanging out. Fun!

Once the race is over and you grabbed a bite to eat -- maybe some brains, for authenticity's sake? -- head back to Skyline for the start of the Zombie Crawl. Things kick off proper at 2 p.m. (get there at noon if you need some help with your makeup). The Widow's Bane plays at 3 p.m., the obligatory "Thriller" dance happens at 3:55 p.m., then it's off to terrorize the mall starting at 4 p.m. Keep going until you're dead tired, or until someone shoots you in the head. There's a costume contest at 5:30 p.m. in Skyline Park, too.
