Zombie Walk

Zombie Stomp

Come and be a part of Naenae’s first ever Zombie Walk!

We'll be dressing up as the living dead and livening up the mood by wandering the streets as an undead mob. This will be a safe, fun, young-person friendly way to explore your inner zombie this Halloween.

Bring some old clothes, makeup, a sense of humour, and a taste for human flesh (...not really!)

Naenae Computer Clubhouse, Treadwell Street - Friday 31 October, getting ready from 4pm, walk starts at 5pm

For the kids there are competitions and lots of prizes to be won!

Wainuiomata Community Hub, Queen Street, Wainuiomata – Saturday 1 November, 10am-3pm
