Long Beach Zombie Fest returns this October as organizers have announced plans for the three-day event in the city’s downtown.

Story continued below.

Starting Friday, October 20 and through Sunday, October 22, fans should expect the infectious fun to take place all three days, starting at 7:00PM on Friday and Saturday and 5:30PM on Sunday.

Want to join in the costume fun but don’t have the time or money to turn into a Hollywood zombie? Worry not! Zombie Fest will be providing professional artists from Cinema Makeup School to turn you into a “flesh-eating zombie” for free! The service will be available that Friday from 5:00PM to 10:00PM and Saturday and Sunday from 3:00PM to 10:00PM.

Expect live entertainment with Slaves Against the Machine tribute band on Saturday and Oingo Boingo/Danny Elfman tribute band Dead Man’s Party on Sunday.

Attendees can also check out a haunted maze with an interactive Zombie Outbreak Cage, a Zombie Apocalypse Scavenger hunt, a “Thriller” workshop that will teach people of all skill levels the infamous photography seen in Michael Jackson’s Thriller video as well as a live interactive reptile exhibit with a Fear Factor attraction.

There will also be a live-action role playing session, a Thrill the World Los Angeles Zombie Flash Mob with an impromptu performance, a horror flick in the Killer Theatre and costume and brain contests for all ages and stages of decay and more.

Tickets are $5 for Friday only, $13 for a 1-day pass either Saturday/Sunday, $18 for a 2-day pass, or $20 for a 3-day pass. The action will take place at Rainbow Lagoon Park, Shoreline Village Drive 400. For more information click here
