Eighth annual ZombiCON at the River District seeks volunteers and attendees

Voodoo nightmares will come alive as downtown Fort Myers hosts the eighth annual ZombiCON on Oct. 18. ZombiCON is put together by the nonprofit organization Pushing DaiZies, a southwest Florida charity that focuses on providing art and music lessons for children in Fort Myers.
“The purpose of the event is to add some historical value to downtown Fort Myers,” said Corey Walker, the volunteer coordinator for the event.
In order to attend the event, Pushing DaiZies requests a $5 donation to enter. The venue will consist of five stages, a cabaret show and rock bands.
There will also be art vendors and food and drink stands along the main street.
The night will consist of a zombie walk, zombie make-up booths, zombie queen drag show and a kid zone. There is also a new feature called The Swamp, a spooky space with art, ambiance and acts iconic to the voodoo nightmares theme.
Volunteers are needed for the event. To find out more information or to sign up for the event, you can visit Zombicon.com or email volu[email protected] The last day to register to volunteer is Oct. 12.
You may also attend the volunteer meetings held at 6 p.m. on the first and second Saturdays and Sundays of October at 2254 Edwards Drive.
