The Wyandotte Zombie Pub Crawl returns for its seventh year on Saturday, Oct. 16th.
The Wyandotte Zombie Pub Crawl is a crowd-fundraising event unlike anything else in the area. It brings hundreds of people together every October who have purchased tickets to participate in Southeastern Michigan’s largest zombie pub crawl in beautiful downtown Wyandotte.
In turn, the event organizers, Be Well My Friends a 501(c)(3), give the net proceeds to people and organizations of the Downriver that need assistance.
In its first six years, the event, was able to give over $62,000 to the “Yes, Ma’am” program, which bi-annually provides breast screenings and free mammograms to under-insured women in the Downriver area at the Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital.
The Yes Ma’am program is headed by Dr. Wolf from the Center for Women’s and Children’s Health and Well Being.
This year’s fundraiser is co-hosted by two non-profits, Be Well My Friends and the Downriver Council for the Arts. The event’s proceeds will be distributed to the “Yes, Ma’am” program at the Wyandotte Henry Ford Hospital, Downriver Council for the Arts, Penrickton Center for the Blind, and Downriver Foster Closet.
The event begins at 4 p.m. with zombies receiving wristbands graciously donated by White Furniture at check-in at the Downriver Council for the Arts, which is located at 81 Chestnut.
Zombies will then crawl to some of the best pubs in downtown Wyandotte where they will receive discounted drinks when they show their wristbands.
Pub crawlers’ carcasses will be hauled around downtown Wyandotte on a ZomBus, which is generously provided by Trinity Transportation.
While on the crawl, they can participate in a scavenger hunt for a $300 cash prize. At 9:30 p.m. the zombie horde crawls back to the DCA for the Afterlife party at 81 Chestnut. There at the DCA, in the eerily decorated former Oddfellows ballroom, the Afterlife party will have live music from the band First Time Crush, costume contest with prizes, cash bar, raffles and door prizes.
The Wyandotte Zombie Pub Crawl and Afterlife party concludes at 2 a.m. when the zombies again return to their graves to rest until the 8th Annual Wyandotte Zombie Pub Crawl in October of 2022.
