You read that right. Strankenstein’s Zombie Prom is back for its 6th year, and those of us in the Wasatch who’ve been waiting to dance around in a blood splattered prom dress couldn’t be happier. Wait–is that weird?
While the event disappeared for a few years, Union Station approached Steve and Trish Strank about *ahem* resurrecting the event. “We thought about it for a while, and, when they told us that there was a Friday The 13th in October this year, we just couldn’t pass that up!” says Steve. In the past, the fundraising event benefitted the fight against Juvenile Diabetes, but this year will benefit the Union Station Foundation. “This year, since the Union Station invited us to put on the event for them, the event will benefit the Union Station Foundation. All of the funds raised this year will go to help keep the amazing building and museums open,” Steve says.
The concept is fairly simple: a bunch of people show up dressed to the nines while also wearing all variety of zombie makeup. Don’t have any makeup skills? No problem! The event has make up artists on site who will transform you into the undead for a fee. Afraid that you’ll resurrect (there I go again!) old memories of awkward high school dances and be reminded about your two left feet? Steve says that’s not an issue either. “There’s really something for everyone. We have an amazing DJ and aerial dance performers, but if you’re like me and have no dance skills whatsoever, there are other things to see and do like performances, prizes and photo ops.”
Costumes are not required for the event, but they do make you fit in just a little better. If you want to get involved with the event at all, they’re still looking for prize donations. The event is happening on Friday, October 13th from 7-11:30pm. Tickets are well-priced at $8 for adults and $6 for children (ages 6-15). You can buy tickets and learn more about the event on their website.
We partnered with Strankenstein’s Zombie Prom to giveaway TWO pairs of tickets to Zombie Prom this year.
