It is such fun to watch the gathering of people dressed as their favorite zombie or monster. There was a family dressed up as Vikings, there were also many ninjas, the Ghostbusters have made an appearance on year, and there are many who aren't zombies but just walking the mall gawking at the shufflers. It's a great event before Halloween for us adults to dress down and parade our ugliness.

Parking can be difficult but if you go early there shouldn't be any problems. Once there, downtown Denver is amassed with zombies shuffling down the 16th St Mall some looked professionally made up while others could take a lesson or two on applying makeup. Earlier in the day there are family-friendly events that lead up to the zombie parade. It is estimated that each year the event out numbers the past years in zombie attendance.
The local businesses welcome the patronage and are happy to serve any zombie, monster, or human.
