Feel the electrified Pulse of the Living Undead coursing through your brain at the 2023 SBC Zombie Walk: Zom•Beatz!
This year’s SBC Zombie Walk will take place on Saturday, October 14th in the East Bank Plaza from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM with an energy that’ll Liven Up the Dead!
The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana will be joining the festivities once again to collect canned food donations in their mission to fight hunger in Northwest Louisiana and LifeShare Blood Center will be onsite collecting blood donations from the freshest zombie donors!
This year they will also be supporting the Yazzy Kids of the Theatre of the Performing Arts of Shreveport by raffling off two tickets to “Haunted Illusions starring David Caserta” donated by the Strand Theatre of Shreveport. All proceeds raised goes towards the Yazzy Kids and their organization.
This year’s Zombie Walk will be bringing back all of the freaky favorites that are expected at this annual event, including a macabre vendor market, delicious food trucks, electrified beats, awesome door prizes, talented costume contests, and, of course, the titular Zombie WALK! Where all of the costumed attendees shamble their way down the East Bank District and back through Hurricane Alley to the delight and surprise of the patrons there.
Notable vendors and guests this year will include NecroManor Haunted House, who will be judging the Zombie Costume Contest once again, Caleb Lemon, a 2023 Louisiana Film Prize Top 20 Finalist, promoting his post-apocalyptic short film “BUG”, the Vampire Court of Shreveport, and local DJ JJ Marshall who will be providing electrified beats that could wake the dead!
Leading up to this year’s SBC Zombie Walk, they have also teamed up with local, professional makeup artist, Sarah Semone, to provide free makeup classes for people to learn how to do their own zombie makeup or refresh their special effects makeup skills in time for this year’s event.
Zombie Makeup Classes will be provided by the Bossier Arts Council every Tuesday night from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM leading up to the SBC Zombie Walk on October 14th. Makeup and materials are provided with limited seating available.
