The race is Halloween/Zombie themed and you are welcome to dress up in costume to run and dance. There will be zombies on the course, but they are not allowed to touch you :) There are three different Zumba instructors to lead you through a fun dance series that includes Thriller. UNC School of the Arts is doing the makeup for all of the volunteer zombies. They are also filming the entire process for a documentary.
   Winston Salem Mayor Allen Joines will be joining the event in a special way.
   There will be a Kids Zone set up with Taekwondo demos from Tiger Kims, Crafts with the Childrens Museum, along with other games and activities. There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the event and in special spooky scenes set up at the Block Party. Camel City Food Truck, Tie Dye, Ice Cream, Hoots Beer and Grins drinks are just a few of the vendors that will be set up from 4-8 at our Block Party.
