It’s not unusual for downtown Minneapolis streets to close temporarily for road construction or to accommodate large crowds gathering at sporting events. The city has now added zombies to the list of reasons for road closures.

On Saturday, Oct. 11, the city is closing several streets to make room for a zombie pub crawl block party in the Warehouse District. The following streets and adjacent sidewalks will be closed between 8 a.m. and midnight.

  • 1st Avenue North from 6th Street North to 3rd Street North
  • 1st Avenue North from 6th Street North to 7th Street North
  • 6th Street North from Hennepin Avenue to 2nd Avenue North
  • 5th Street North from Hennepin Avenue to 2nd Avenue North
  • 4th Street North from Hennepin Avenue to 2nd Avenue North

You’ve been warned.
