We had a great time this weekend at the Zombie 5k Race just outside of Denver in Lakewood, Colorado. There were thousands of runners and zombies participating in the event and we here at aiko pops felt privileged to be a part of it. It was a very hot day so our popsicles were very popular (almost as popular as the beer tent but not quite. No real surprise there.) The big hit was the Zomberry popsicle as seen in the accompanying photo.
The creativity at the event was awesome! Participants wore clever outfits some that you expect in a zombie apocalypse and others that you would not. One of our favorites was a person wearing a shirt that said “Eat that guy” and then another person that had a shirt on that said “That guy.” The Zombies were also very creative in their flesh eating techniques, which made things very entertaining for us spectators.
It was a very fun day and we were happy our ice pops could be a part of it. Check out some of the pictures on the Denver Westword website by following this link to the slideshow. We are in slide #99. http://www.westword.com/slideshow/run-for-your-lives-zombie-5k-37307694/

The itchy-O Marching Band (IOMB) is a Denver-based percussion-centered electronic marching band and the mobile arm of the experimental film/music troupe itchy-O. itchy-O brings a sophisticatedly savage sound and the sheer ecstasy of electronic instruments untethered and running free. With a driving drum corp complemented by an arsenal of electronics including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and many other special devices, the IOMB completely engulfs and immerses an audience from every angle in a pounding electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle. The unidentifiable IOMB is waging war on predictable mediocrity with their guerrilla-style performances which feature an artfully hazardous Chinese lion, a frenetic Taiko troupe, sensuous dancing twin apparitions, fog, strobes, sequins, sweat and fury. itchy-O has been featured on Colordao Public Radio, performed for the Biennial of the Americas Kick-off Party, Denver’s Underground Music Showcase, Westword’s Artopia, conferences such as Adobe’s Effective UI, and other festivals and launch parties. They’ve opened for DEVO, The Melvins, March Fourth, the Extra Action Marching Band, the Warlock Pinchers and headlined many other shows.
With food trucks, Dr. Dr. Whom, EchoBeds, and a Flaming Hearse Parade this BYOB Underground Outdoor Party is going to be MAGNIFICENT! !
