Zombiefest is a zombie festival and run operated by The Haunted Barn. It will be May 10th at Camp Virgil Tate in the Charleston area.
Things start with a 5k obstacle course through woods starting at 7am. A 5k mountain bike starts over the same course at noon. At 4pm the zombie run of the same course starts, an obstacle course with zombies chasing you all along the way to steal your life flags. All you have to do is make it to the finish line with one life flag left. Cash prizes and awards will be handed out for all the races. First 1500 to pre-reg for the zombie run get a free zombie run t-shirt.
After all the running and biking then the apocalypse after party starts. You can hang with special guests at the event: horror legend Tom Savini, actor, stuntman, director,special effects and makeup artist; Tyler Mane, Sabertooth from X-Men movie, Michael Myers in the Halloween remake; Tamara Glynn, Samantha Thomas in Halloween 5; Savana Jade Wehunt and Jeremy Ambler of The Walking Dead; Goldie Fatale and Andie Noir of Fatale Noir Productions; and professorial wrestler The Stro. There will be Zombie Laser Tag provided by Fright nights of Glade Springs Resort, vendors, concession stands with beer. There will be concerts by Gage, Dead Serious, The Renfields, Fully Justified, Stych N Tyme, and Bobaflex. Nice line up for hard rock fans.
Registration for the Zombie Run is $75, regular 5k run is $55, and the bike run is $45. All tickets include the after party; I think, at least the zombie run does. Spectator tickets are $20, these do let you into the after party. They still have room for anyone interested in being a vendor for $250.
Yet another event out there for zombie lovers. Though those who just like to party should also find it nice.
