Z-Day, a zombie infested 5K run and obstacle course, plus the Z-Day Festival, an outdoor celebration of New Orleans music, food, and subculture, will take place in Kenner’s Laketown on September 21, 2013.
The 5K will consist of 4,000 to 8,000 runners who are chased by “zombies” through a military style obstacle course, with heats every half hour from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.
The Z-Day Festival will begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 PM with musical acts headlined by Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes plus Flow Tribe, and food and beverages provided by New Orleans’ greatest vendors. Additional musical acts are Hot 8 Brass Band, Little Freddie King, and The Stooges.
Proceeds stay in Greater New Orleans to benefit the SPCAs of Louisiana and Jefferson Parish.
