   On Saturday, Oct. 14 at Nine Mile and Mack, local stores are hosting the third annual Zombie Crawl and Halloween Block Bash to help raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

  This family-friendly event offers lots of different things to do between and 12-3 p.m. One of the main events is the Zombie Crawl. In this, participants will be dressed as zombies and creep all along the sidewalks of the area, and trick and treat along the way. They will walk in groups of less than fifteen people with an adult volunteer to supervise the participants.

  There will be even more events inside of the businesses in the area. One of these will take after the Zombie Crawl in New Edge Martial Arts. The Sensei will be hosting a free “zombie self defense lesson,” for anyone who wants to know how to fight a zombie.

  One of these events that will be occurring during the day is hosted by Casali and Mary Ellen Dance Schools. Theses two dance schools will do a Halloween dance performance during the day as well, for everyone to enjoy.

 Karen P, co-owner of Cafe Farbella, stated, “This event was started three years ago by Kevin, the martial arts instructor next door to us.  It has grown substantially. The first year, we had about thirty people, last year we had eighty five, and this year we are hoping to get to one hundred.”

 There will be other smaller events you can participate in, and various benefits you can reap in the different shops. Cafe Farbella will be hosting a Halloween party, where you can get spooky savings on their wide selection of food, drinks, and desserts. On the sidewalks, you will be able to do arts and crafts and face painting at participating locations.

  “We have a couple new changes that we are doing this year that we haven’t done in the past. Giving candy away is one of those new things, and there are a couple new stores who have decided to participate in this event was well,” Jack P, co-owner of Cafe Farbella stated.

  Considering this is a family style event, there are some restrictions to what costumes you can wear. Offensive and inappropriate costumes are forbidden. Fake blood, glitter, or wet paint on shoes are also forbidden, as they can damage the floors inside of shops. If you would like to be a participant, you can pay five dollars up front. Families of four or more participants pay no more than twenty dollars. Half of these proceeds from this event go towards the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, so this exciting event is for an even greater cause.
