Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk 2018

The 9th Annual Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk invades the Capital City once again on Saturday October 13, 2018, and all ages of the undead are welcome to walk for FREE! We ask participants to bring a nonperishable food donation in support of the Greater Lansing Food Bank, and to assemble at 11:30am inside the Lansing Center by Exhibit Hall C.

Once the donations are collected, the horde members will be given a wristband before being unleashed on the unsuspecting citizens of Lansing, Michigan at high noon. Traffic comes to a stand still as we shuffle our way to the steps of the Capitol for the greatest photo op ever seen. Afterwards, we invite the walking dead to return to the Lansing Center for discounted entry into How-To Halloween to compete for big prizes in our Best Zombie Contest on the main stage and join in all the spooktacular fun at the festival.

Capital City Comic Con 2018

Capital City Comic Con is greater Lansing’s first comic convention, committed to providing the best exhibition of Comics, Collectibles & Creators in Greater Lansing & providing support for our Community Fully knowing the power comics have to ignite a hunger for reading, we have endeavored to support the pervasive issue of illiteracy in Greater Lansing by partnering with The Reading People at the Capital Area Literacy Coalition, a nonprofit organization that has helped children and adults in the capital area and throughout the state of Michigan learn to read, write and speak English with an ultimate goal of helping individuals achieve self-sufficiency for more than 30 years. In addition, we’re proud to have established the Capital City Comic Con Original Art Scholarship in Comic Studies in 2016. The scholarship is offered exclusively to current students at Michigan State University to encourage the study of comic art. We look forward to hosting an amazing event in 2018, making a significant impact in our community, and continuing to grow Greater Lansing’s own Capital City Comic Con.
