Chandler, Ariz. – If you hear shuffling of feet and clambering for brains on Oct. 21 in Downtown Chandler, no, you have not walked into a horror film; you’re just at the Third Annual Chandler Zombie Walk, the theme of the October’s Third Friday Chandler Art Walk.
In addition to the usual monthly gathering of over 35 local artisans displaying and selling their works at Dr. AJ Chandler Park and along San Marcos Pl., guests will find zombified activities. Attendees are encouraged to “reanimate” themselves before attending the event by wearing dilapidated clothing fit for a zombie traveling the Phoenix desert. Complimentary zombie face painting, provided by The Studio Academy of Beauty, will be available during the duration of the event, from 6:00-9:30 p.m. In addition, a photographer has agreed to brave the apocalypse, and will provide complimentary photos to guests and zombies alike. Local band, Gillwire will provide live music for the night from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
“We’re excited to welcome back the popular Zombie Walk at the Chandler Art Walks for the third time. Last year’s event was rained out, and we knew it was a bummer for many, so we’re really looking forward to this year’s event,” Deanne Fenton, Event Coordinator of Downtown Chandler said.
