What on earth?!

If you have ever wondered what a zombie apocalypse would look like or are a zombifile who can’t wait until Halloween to indulge yourself, hang on to your limbs; the Cheyenne Zombie Fest is back for a second round to celebrate all things zombie! Zombie Fest II has Cheyenne’s downtown area overrun with activities from The Historic Atlas Theatre, The Cheyenne Depot and Plaza, The Hynds Building, and The Plains Hotel on Saturday, September 29th. This is an event for all walks of life; so feel free to have the little ghouls tag along for fun and games at Zombieland for kids.
