Zombie artwork feeds charity’s needs at downtown Mesa block party

Events, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

“Zombies Versus” is the theme of this month’s Second Friday block party in downtown Mesa. Dress like a zombie for a zombie walk, or dress like a robot and help eradicate the zombie uprising at this family friendly gathering with live music, art, contests and prizes.

Speaking of art, a “Zombie Bob Ross” (portrayed by artist David St. Albans) will give his undead art creations away for the price of two nonperishable food items or a $2 cash donation to Mesa’s United Food Bank. See if he’ll paint you a “happy little brain” or two…

Other harrowing Halloweenish highlights:

  • Monsterland, a state of the art haunted attraction, loaded with CGI, animatronic figures, laser, strobe, and water effects.
  • Creative costume contest with live music and prizes at the OneOhOne Gallery at 8 p.m.
