The Zombies are Coming to Nigra Arts Center!

On Saturday, October 28, dress up as a ZOMBIE and prepare to scare up some fun at the Zombie Fun Run/Walk to benefit the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts. The public is invited to participate in and/or sponsor this family fun event, which will take place on the grounds of the center, located at 2736 State Highway 30 in Gloversville.

Registration will take place from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and the Zombie Fun Run/Walk will kick off at 10 a.m. Participants will receive a free t-shirt as long as they register by October 20. The entry fee is $25 per person. Those who wish to register can do so at or in person the day of the event for $30. T-shirts will be included based on availability. Children 5 and under are admitted free (no shirt provided).

Throughout the course, zombie runners and walkers will be greeted by friendly ghouls and creatures who will shower them with sweet treats while scaring up plenty of laughs – all in the name of good fun! The race will not be timed. Water will be available on site.

Following completion of the Zombie Fun Run/Walk, there will be a Zombie Party featuring live entertainment, a costume contest, creepy and cool face painting, and food for sale.
