Downtown Brainerd Zombie Pub Crawl

For individuals interested in dressing up like a zombie and doing a pub. crawl in downtown Brainerd, this is an event you won't want to miss.   This event has been taking place in Brainerd for the last few years and continues to grow in terms of numbers.  I have heard from many people that the music is awesome and the addition of the Northland Arb. trails to the festivities this year will make the event even more awesome. 

From the Visit Brainerd Site:

Zombie infestations have been reported in Brainerd.

The DTB (Down Town Brainerd) Zombie Crawl will be May 1st & 2nd 2015!

In 2014 the infection spread from downtown Brainerd to include a zombie trail at the Northland Arboretum in addition to several live bands and many new activities. This year the klinup of activities continues to evolve with the addition of two new zombie shoot including a zombie paintball shoot. They have also added a zombie video game tournament. These activities are in addition to the other activities including the zombie parade and zombie bar crawl.

This family friendly zombie event also incorporates a scavenger hunt through downtown Brainerd in which participants visit downtown businesses to find pieces of a zombie picture puzzle. All scavenger hunt participants and others who register for the parade follow the same route as the St. Patrick's Day parade. The parade ends at Yesterday's Gone, where it is followed by the awards ceremony. Ghoul up and come down for a great day of activities, zombie style!

In 2014 the new zombie hordes descended on downtown in great numbers and reports indicate that in 2015 the infection will continue to spread bringing hundreds of zombies to the community.

Zombies roam late into the evening and live music abounds so be sure to book your stay at one of the Brainerd and Baxter hotels or water parks, after all even zombies need to rest eventually.
