On any standard night in Broad Ripple, it is normal to see a staggering, mindless patron wandering the streets, however that normally isn’t at 7pm. That will be the case on October 25th as the streets of Broad Ripple will be overran with mindless zombies. That’s right – Indy Mojo is bringing back the Broad Ripple Zombie walk benefiting Gleaners Food Bank.
The outbreak will begin in the Kroger parking lot at 5pm and with a number of festivities before the walk actually begins. As in years past, Gleaners will have a truck setup to collect the food donations for the walk. Walkers are asked to bring five lbs or 10 cans of food to donate; for this, they receive a Zombie Walk t-shirt (while supplies last).
Live music from Rudy Kizer will provide the soundtrack to the day, while The Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will on site to helping turn everyone into zombies. Also returning this year will be a number of fire spinners providing “hot” entertainment. All of these activities will keep the adults entertained while waiting for the walk to start, however the Mojo crew has something in store for the kids as well.
This year a new addition to the Zombie Walk is the Zombie Carnival. This event will feature a number of traditional carnival games, but with a zombie twist. Everyone participating in the games will receive a raffle ticket that will be used to win one of three grand prizes.
At 6pm everyone in attendance will be invited to participate in a truly special event: a glorious zombie wedding that will unite two undead for all of eternity. Bring a handful of brain chunks to shower the bride with!
After the walk is finished be sure to swing by Hopcat, one of the walk’s sponsors, for good food and drinks.Immediately following the zombie feast, all zombies are encouraged to attend the Zombie Prom at The Vogue Theater (21+ only).
If you can’t make it to the prom, head south to Nightmare on Edgewood where any costumed zombie that mentions Indy Mojo will get $5 off admission. Read our review of Indy’s most intense haunt here and check out our special behind the scenes interview with our favorite haunt in town here.
