It’s time to get into character.
Zombie Walk_kidZombie Walk 4 is rolling toward Downtown Phoenix like an undead haboob of 10,000 arm munchers – and it isn’t just for big zombies anymore.
Bring your little ghouls, goblins and, well, zombies to Arizona Science Center’s Little Zombie Zone Saturday, Oct. 27 from 2- 5:30 p.m. in Heritage and Science Park for some seriously scary science fun!
Make Bloody Handprints all while learning about bases and acids, study the effects of vibration and frequency as you trap ghosts inside a Screaming Balloon and watch simple liquids turn into a slimy bag of snot right before your eyes!
Want more? Our resident zombie scientists will lead you through spooky dissections that reveal the inner workings of (cow’s) eyes and bones.
This family-friendly event is FREE to attend and a canned food donation to St. Mary’s Food Bank gets you a date with a volunteer makeup artist.
And for the full-grown zombies, the fun continues well into the night with live bands, a beer garden, food, craft and makeup vendors and, of course, the largest zombie herd west of New Orleans shuffling through the streets of Downtown Phoenix at dusk.
But we all know the science is where the fun is at. Stay tuned for our next blog post where we use a coconut to show you How to Stop a Zombie.
