Step Right Up! It’s about to get Wicked in Whiting...
Join us for the third annual Wickedly Whiting Festival on October 14th! Begin the day with a Zombie 5K fun run beginning at 11 a.m. at Whihala Beach. Sign up to be runner or a zombie at active.com by searching for Whiting, IN Zombie. Runners will endure a 5K run through a zombie-infested, tree lined course. Test your speed while trying to avoid ravenous zombies! Do you have what it takes to make it out alive? Runners will have flags that represent their health. Zombies will try to steal those flags. Runners must make it to the finish line with at least one flag or become one of the walking dead!
All participants receive a dri-wick t-shirt, tickets to our festival beer garden, and a chance at a medal!
The festival runs from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. and includes food vendors with many fall comfort foods, a beer garden with live bands and many specialty brews, and a family stage offering a reptile show, magician, story time, costume contests and more! Scare addicts can shop the Market of the Living Dead and Tomkat Comics Vendor Village for all types of Halloween, sci-fi & horror items. Breakfast with a monster begins at 9:00 a.m. at Winey Beach Café (call 659.1466 for reservations). Get “Trapped in a Room with a Clown” and solve riddles to get out, before they get you! (Featuring the Clowns from the FOP Haunted Hayride.)
This is the only event of its kind in the Region, celebrating everything Halloween! It’s about to get wicked in Whiting!
