Fifth annual Zombie Pub Crawl takes over downtown Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Saturday night was the fifth annual–and final–Springs Zombie Pub Crawl.

Tejon Street was taken over by the walking undead as zombies visited several downtown bars and restaurants. The zombies first gathered at Acacia Park to meet and mingle before moving down the strip.

“It’s just fun hanging out with friends and being stupid,” Springs Zombie Pub Crawl creator Mitch Nielsen said. “It’s kind of like a mini Halloween, where everyone just has an excuse to look ridiculous.”

This is the last year for the event. In the past, they said, they’ve had 200 to 300 people participate, but attendance has been declining over the years.
