7th Annual Iowa City Zombie March: Las Vegas!, Saturday, October 6, 5:00-10:00 PM
Zombies will be invading downtown Iowa City this weekend…will you join the horde? Zombies are gathering at Happy Hallow Park at 800 Brown Street at 4:00 PM (feel free to get makeup tips, zombie-walking tutorials, hang with zombie friends), then the march begins at 5:00. Eventually zombies will end up at the Mill, (free admission to zombies, a non-perishable food item for the uninfected), with snacks and zombie partying until 10:00. Sounds like great fun, and the proceeds of the event go to charity organizations in the area. Want more info? Check out their Facebook page or website.
Star Wars Reads Day, Saturday, October 6, in various locations
Unfortunately, no locations in Iowa City according to the official website…but if you can get to Marion, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, or Des Moines, consider attending an event for Star Wars Reads Day. According to their website, “On October 6th, 2012, fans will come together to celebrate reading and Star Wars. Join in the fun by finding an event near you in the map provided below. All events will have giveaways and a raffle. Select events will have authors and/or costumed characters on hand from the 501st Legion, the Rebel Legion, the Mandalorian Mercs and the R2 Builders Club.” Check out specific information for your location through their website or Facebook page.
And remember, Teen Tech Zone on Saturdays also has crafts! We could make some zombie papercrafts, or find some Star Wars papercrafts online, or make a bookmark, or Mod-Podge a picture frame, or try out my new crochet hooks on some amigurumi (I’m just learning)…stop by and say hi between 1-4:00 PM!
