Imagine a whole town that celebrates Halloween! You’ll find it in Washburn, WI when they celebrate their 6th annual Washburn Zombie Days!
It’s been a tradition in Washburn to go trick or treating the night before Halloween for decades. The old DuPont Plant used to host a huge party at the Civic Center for the town on Halloween night. Even though those parties have ended, Washburn still trick or treats the night before Halloween. Washburn has a long history of creating fond Halloween memories for its residents from huge parties to haunted houses, scavenger hunts, and parades. The Washburn Area Chamber is pleased to bring back these traditions with Washburn Zombie Days. This festival honors past resident, Tony Woiak, who was a historian, film maker, and author. He filmed zombie movies, and wrote many books about Washburn. He unfortunately lost his battle with cancer in 2011. Washburn Zombie Days is to honor Tony’s love of Halloween.
