WINNIPEG, MB – Over the years, many have tried to invade Shaw Park, but none have been as relentless as the living dead coming to the downtown ballpark on July 28th.
Presented by 103.1 Virgin Radio, the Winnipeg Goldeyes host their third annual Zombie Night on Friday, July 28th against the rival Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks at 7:05 p.m.
“We heard how many zombies over-ran the ballpark last year, so Virgin Radio had to get involved just to witness this,” said Virgin Radio host Ace Burpee. “We’re thankful that fans will bring a tin for Winnipeg Harvest to build our reserves for the complete zombie apocalypse.”
Winnipeg Harvest volunteers will be at the ballpark collecting food and monetary donations. Also, Peak of the Market Growers will match all food donations to Winnipeg Harvest, pound for pound, with fresh Manitoba vegetables.
Fans can arrive early and enjoy live entertainment beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the Casinos of Winnipeg Stage outside the main gates. Fans are encouraged to wear their best zombie costumes and makeup, as well as participate in the pre-game, on-field zombie walk at 6:30 p.m. All zombies are eligible to win great prizes.
“It is amazing to see the number of zombie families that have attended Zombie Night in the past, and we look forward to another great herd this time around,” said Dan Chase, Goldeyes’ Director of Sales & Marketing.
Makeup artists from “A Maze in Corn” will be on hand to apply zombie makeup to ensure that everyone blends in with the real zombies.
Zombie-themed food & beverages, such as Blood Mini Donuts, Zombie Brain Fries, and Zombie Cocktails will be available at select concessions throughout the concourse. Fans can also participate in a zombie trivia contest.
Following the game, all humans and zombies will be treated to a spectacular fireworks show, presented by award-winning Archangel Fireworks.
