Halloween may be about putting on a costume and trick or treating around your city block, but in Red Deer, AB it’s about so much more. The rumours in the area describe a mass pilgrimage, a collective gathering from across Alberta and beyond, a zombie mosh pit coming alive. Are the rumours true…? Well during the Days of The Dead Fest, a Heavy Metal Music Festival Costume Party Extravaganza takes over!
“At first it was an excuse for a costume party with the bands I’ve developed friendships with, but has gradually changed into something that I feel Red Deer deserves to call its own. The crowds here are so supportive and I love giving them a gigantic event they can look forward to. Days of The Dead came to be because the first year we held it, the festival fell on the Day of the Dead – November 1st.”
Now in its 4th year, Days of The Dead has grown from a two day event hosting 15 bands for both all ages and 18+ to a three night reunion of friends, music fans and a Halloween aficionados.
