Where: Downtown Reno

Tickets: $5


Ten years ago, the Reno Zombie Crawl began with a few hundred people and a couple of bars — but today nearly 20,000 people attend the annual event, which spans over 40 locations throughout the city.

“The Reno Zombie Crawl is the kind of event that you absolutely have to cross off your bucket list — and the cool thing is, you can do it AFTER you kick the bucket!” states the Crawl Reno website.

Join thousands of people (dressed as the undead) in downtown Reno for a night you may or may not remember.

“If you haven’t been to a Crawl Reno bar crawl before, they’re like huge, city-wide costume parties with booze!

“The sheer size of this party is amazing to behold, as are all the thousands upon thousands of costumes, drink specials, contests, entertainment and awesome people!” continues the website.

Patrons over the age of 21 enter the event for a $5 fee, which also includes a crawl cup and map. Along with admission, the cup gives attendees the ability to receive $3 drink specials at participating establishments, along with access to photo booths, giveaways, costume contests and more.

The Reno Zombie Crawl also offers hotel discount codes, so there’s no need to worry about figuring out transportation after the event.

The crawl begins at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21, and concludes at 6 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22.
