About This Activity

The dead have risen, and they’re hungry. Consumed with a ravenous desire for human flesh, they are everywhere. All they do is kill, and the people they kill awaken, infected with whatever it is that is causing the newly dead to rise. Society is crumbling. The streets are in ruins. Your own family and friends may have joined the ranks of the undead. And they’re coming right at you...
Join us in Whiting, Indiana for the second annual Wickedly Whiting Festival and Zombie 5K! Located 17 minutes south of the Chicago Loop, this Halloween festival is the first of its kind in the region. The 5K is located at Whiting Park, on the shore of Lake Michigan, which is just a couple of blocks away from the fest. Once you get throughthe 5K, hopefully alive, visit our festival, a festival of food, fun, and shopping!
