Calling all the Living Dead folks out there.

It’s almost time for Deadfest 2016.

Three bands — The Pit, As Ash Fell, Shobocon and Under the Mountain — are ready to hit the stage at the Duncan Lodge on Moose Road in Duncan on Saturday, Oct. 29 starting at 8 p.m.

Deadfest means raising funds while having fun dancing and showing off your Halloween style. This year, all proceeds from the event go to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Cowichan Valley.

The idea is to dress up, and spend a great Halloween Saturday rockin’ out. There are lots of prizes for costumes so let it rip.

Tickets are $20 now online, or $25 at the door.

You can get ticket information online at but put aside a couple extra bucks for a raffle ticket. It will be worth over a $1,000, organizers promise.

And you can take the party bus home, too. It covers Duncan to Nanaimo.
