KAFM’s Zombie Prom returns to Grand Junction
WHAT: Zombie Prom
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 25, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
WHERE: Mesa Theater and Club, 538 Main Street, Grand Junction
COST: $12 in advance or $15 at the door
Get creepy at KAFM’s sixth annual Zombie Prom set for Saturday, Oct. 25, at Grand Junction’s Mesa Theater and Club. The party starts at 8 p.m. and will go until close at 2 a.m. Tickets cost $12 in advance or $15 at the door. It’s an 18-and-over party, 21 to drink.
The event will benefit KAFM 88.1, which is a Grand Junction-based, community driven, nonprofit radio station.
According to Cash Kiser, KAFM events coordinator, Zombie Prom will host “nine of the hottest electronic DJs” on two stages, a costume contest, and complimentary prom photos upstairs.
“Zombie makeup and clothing is encouraged,” he said. “There were almost 500 ticket buyers for last year’s event. It was tremendously popular.”
Last year’s reining prom king, Justin Nordine of Raw Canvas Tattoo Studio & Art Gallery, hopes to reclaim his title again this Saturday.
“I will be unrecognizable!” he said, adding “I like that [Zombie Prom] brings the community together. It’s one big party with great music and zombies. What could be better?”
While most of Zombie Prom’s festivities “bask in tradition,” Kiser noted, one change is worth noting — this year a Zombie Crawl (pub crawl) before the event will not be held. In its place, a Zombie Flash Mob will perform a five-minute routine to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” on the 500 block of Main Street. Those interested in participating should show up to La Puerta Dance Studio (523 1/2 Main St., Grand Junction) at 6 p.m. on Saturday to learn the routine. The flashmob will commence at 7:30 p.m.
