Is that a Typo? Does it really say .5K; as in half of a kilometer? Yes, folks.  That is not a typo.  We are holding a Zombie Pub Crawl to encourage our Zombie population to “crawl” or “stroll” through Downtown Manistee from tavern to tavern.  There will be four locations (Bluefish; River Street Station; TJ’s; and the Boathouse).  At each location if you buy the Zombie Drink of the Bar (or make any non-alcoholic purchase) you will be eligible to have your Zombie Passport stamped.  At each location you will also be able to taste a Zombie Brat.  After you have completed the entire Crawl, return your passport to the Monster Bash (located at the parking lot beside River Street Stockyard) and be entered for a chance to win $150 in Downtown Dollars.  Also the person that completes the Crawl with the best costume (judged by Elite Zombie Costume Judges) will receive the coveted 2014 Zombie Crawl Tankard which will include 6 beer tickets for the evening.

There will be Zombie Passports available at each of the four locations.  Ask your bartender for a passport and Crawl with the rest of the Zombies down River Street.  (Purchase at each location is necessary, however you can purchase a non-alcoholic drink or menu item instead)

7pm - 11pm | Monster Bash with Live Music by "Tim Krause & Friends", Cold Beer, Brats, Hot Cider in the parking lot behind River St. Stockyard and Spirits : 10PM Adult Costume Contest sponsored by Port City Organics Real Food Market
