Now that Denver's hallowed annual 16th Street Mall Zombie Crawl
has gotten the nod from the Guinness Book of World Records
and we've surely become the Zombie Capital of the World
, doesn't it seem like a shame to just pack up your Zombie gear until next year? The Halloween streets are calling out to all urban ghouls, and the Art District on Santa Fe
is answering that call tonight with an Art District Zombie Crawl and Halloween Party that mixes up art-walking with seasonal high-jinks. To quote district board member and enthusiast Dana Cain, "Where else can you look at great art, get candy from everyone and watch zombie hordes shambling by?" Right-o. What she said.
The search for art and brains begins at 6 p.m., but all zombies are invited to gather at the intersection of 8th and Santa Fe at 5 p.m. for mass crawling and costume contesting. Hot spots include a 7 p.m. costume contest at Carol Mier Fashion, artist receptions at the Sandra Phillips and Niza Knoll galleries and the handing out of candy and treats at various locations up and down the street; a big party at Boxcar Gallery tops it all off between 7 and 10 p.m. with its own costume and dance contests, live music by North to Nowhere and artist pumpkin carving, to boot. Shake a leg. But don't lose it! The night is young, zombie hordes.
