DETAILS | For 9 years, the Zombie Defense Initiative has given citizens an experience that they could find nowhere else. For the past 2 years, the safest zone was at home. This year, more than ever, we need to have a happening that will unite citizens looking for escape. ​ Some of the businesses might appear to be boarded up, vegetation may reclaim buildings, trash may be strewn everywhere, burning tires and barrels of toxic waste may litter the streets. Abandoned cars, buses and even airplanes have known to be damaged and overturned in the streets and on top of buildings. Do not fear! Your safety is our number one concern. Some steadfast businesses will be open for you to get food, beverages, shelter, and provisions. ​ We at the Zombie Defense Initiative will make sure that every citizen is entertained with three stages of live entertainment, bands, food, drinks, vendors, cage matches in the Thunderdome, live graffiti artists, a hookah lounge, costume contest, special guests like MeTV’s SVENGOOLIE and surprises around every corner. ​ To maintain some sort of economic health, we are asking for a nominal entrance fee to Nightmare on Chicago Street. Ages 17+
