Get Your Zombie On At Shaw Park: Aug. 18

A zombie apocalypse is coming to Shaw Park this summer, and it’s gonna be scary good.

On Aug. 18, the Winnipeg Goldeyes will embrace their inner Walking Dead at the fourth annual Zombie Night. In addition to prizes for the scariest costumes and makeup, Zombie Night will feature two hours of terrifying pregame activities starting at 4 p.m.

For starters, more than 25 characters will be serving up screams around the park, while the Heebie Jeebies Indoor Haunt is 1,000 square feet of pure terror. There will also be a Zombie Night trivia contest and zombie-inspired food, like Blood Mini Donuts, Zombie Brain Fries and Zombie Cocktails. And to top it off, all humans and zombies will be treated to a spectacular fireworks show following the game.

If you don’t have a costume, not to worry – makeup artists from A Maze in Corn will also be on hand to ensure everyone blends in with the real zombies.

Winnipeg Harvest volunteers will also be at the ballpark collecting food and monetary donations, and Peak of the Market will match all food donations, pound for pound, with fresh Manitoba vegetables.

Tickets for Zombie Night and all Goldeyes home games are available at Goldeyes.com and the box office at Shaw Park.
