Zombie Walk canceled due to coronavirus

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – One of Fort Wayne’s most popular Halloween-time traditions is a coronavirus casualty this year.

The city yesterday said the annual Zombie Walk is being canceled. Other parts of Fright Night, which is on October 17th this year, will still go on.

Event leaders are telling people to check the Fright Night website to see just what the night will entail.

Organizers released the following:

“Straight from the pages of a paperback thriller comes the tale of a year that you will not soon forget (though you may want to) and will chill you to your very core. In the thriving Downtown of Fort Wayne, Indiana, a worldwide pandemic seeks to destroy the fun of Fright Night for all. However, a team of survivors set out to once again combat the forces of darkness that seek to exterminate the spirit of Halloween. Our fearless team must find a way to keep the Fright Night spirit alive, despite the fact that Zombie Central, the Zombie Walk headquarters, has been shut down. Can they do it despite the cancellation of the Zombie Walk? How will they rise above the malaise and cabin fever?! Stay tuned for updates in the next chapter of the tale of Fright Night 2020: The Year to DISTANCE!
Editor’s commentary: In order to adhere to Indiana’s Back on Track guidelines, Fright Night’s annual Zombie Walk and Zombie Central have been cancelled. Never fear! We will be announcing new Spooktacular Downtown Activities very soon that will allow us to stay socially engaged and physically distant!”
