This October, Fuquay-Varina will be transformed into a total playground for adults and children. Beginning just after the vampires return to their coffins, the walking dead will overrun the streets searching for tasty brains. The only question is will you be running, hunting, slaying, eating brains or be a hero during the 5k game? Check out the different ways to participate.
If being part of a mob of cannibal corpses isn’t your thang (come on, you know it’s a guilty pleasure), there’s plenty more fun to be had. Sneak into Strafe Gaming Lounge for some zombie (or not) video game play or join the wee zombie play zone for inflatable fun. Heck, stand on the sidelines and cheer!
Whatever role you play, play it in costume because you’ll have a chance at a prize, plus it’s a second chance to wear your epic Halloween costume.
Choose a role. Have fun. Raise funds.
