For the past 10 years, the city of Elgin’s streets have been crawling with zombies… we need to unite and stop them together on October 21st, 2023! The night of the dead is coming up soon! Not only has the footprint for the event gotten larger, but there is a whole new zone about the Aztec underworld!
