Braiiiiiiinnnnssssss!

Denver is absolutely a cosplay town, and it only follows that we take Halloween season to the next level. Hence the Denver Zombie Crawl, which is on its eleventh year. Undead and post-apocalyptic warriors gathered in Skyline Park, uniting peacefully to celebrate the horrors of a beyond-the-grave lifestyle.
