Fright Up Night Activities
Have you ever seen one zombie put another into a Full Nelson? Hopefully no one will lose their head during the craziest undead wrestling you can imagine. With two back-to-back matches at the top of every hour, patrons can root for their favorite blood-thirsty brain-eaters as they face off. Presented in partnership with RYSE Wrestling.
Also, join in the final Saturday Night Market of the season featuring handmade and artisan products. The Pittsburgh City Paper Stage will feature a DJ spinning monster hits live from the crypt.
