NOLA Zombi - Z-Day: Run & Festival

Event Information:

Z-Day, a zombie infested 5K run and obstacle course, plus the Z-Day Festival, an outdoor celebration of New Orleans music, food, and subculture, will take place in Kenner’s Laketown on September 21, 2013. The 5K will consist of 4,000 to 8,000 runners who are chased by “zombies” through a military style obstacle course, with heats every half hour from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The Z-Day Festival will begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 PM with musical acts headlined by Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes plus Flow Tribe, and food and alcoholic beverages provided by New Orleans’ greatest vendors.

      Well, It was REAL wet out there. Rained or drizzled the whole time. Alot of makeup smeared but stayed on for the most part. I will post some photos later this evening.

      Hope you had fun there... Decided to stay in rather than get my camera wet... Hope my $20 went to SPCA. :-)

    Sorry...sales meeting scheduled with "the living" in Baton Rouge will trump the zombies. Have fun, y'all !

    Why does it cost $20 ? All the vendors pay a fee to sell their wares.

      It's a fundraiser for the SPCA I believe

    Will I be able to just take photos?

      Yes, it's $20 to go to the festival. It's more if you want to run. :-)

    Any recent info on this event? Suppose we pay and register, should be able to walk/shoot... Mainly need to know if runners are allowed to bring in camera.
    Appreciate any/all info for this event.

      I have updated the information above about getting the ticket(s). No further updates at this time. I think the runners can carry cameras (or backpacks) while they run, but that won't be a good idea - if you plan to join the run.

    How do they know to schedule these things when I am working. Again, y'all have fun

    HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE A ZOMBIE TO RUN A 5K? 2-3 DAYS. I FIGURE I'LL SHOW UP ON MONDAY AFTERNOON AND SHOOT THE WINNER.

    I contacted the event organizers about shooting the run, and no response so far... Maybe someone else has an in with them?

    Please note that it is not a free event - $20 for the festival.

    • Conrad L.

      I can try to call them on Monday. Or submit the form on their website to obtain press pass.

      June 29, 2013

    • Bryan

      I got an email.. they said they have it covered by photographers that are paying to get in... still ok to go and shoot I guess...
