Oktoberfest
 
Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held each year in Munich, Germany, running from late September to early October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year.

People all over the world celebrate the festival, whether of German heritage or not. So then it's no surprise that Urban Dead players are celebrating it in style. With such a wide array of pubs in Malton, it's only natural that a Oktoberfest is celebrated in a glorious month long pub crawl. So grab a schnitzel, or a würstl, and a stein of your favorite Bavaian bier and come crawl with us. Prost!

Halloween
 
According to the old Celtic beliefs, Samhain was a day on which spirits (both harmful and benign) could enter our earthly realm from the ghostly Otherworld. The ghosts of family members were welcomed in homes but the harmful spirits were warded off through the use of masks, costumes and large carved turnips. These and other practices have spanned the centuries and today the holiday is a celebration of monsters, witches, ghouls, ghosts and devils.

With a zombie apocalypse as a backdrop, Halloween has been wildly celebrated each year in Malton, though in recent years the tradition has been more low key. October Bash hopes to rectify that by organizing Malton's largest ever zombie dance performance. Other Halloween themed events will be announced so be sure to watch the Halloween page and listen to 25.92MHz for updates.

Red October
 
Marking the dawn of the Soviet Union in Russia, the October Revolution (know also as Red October) was an armed political coup and insurrection spearheaded by the soviet revolutionary group the Bolsheviks in October 1917. Since the revolution was not universally recognized outside of Petrograd, the ensuing Russian Civil War lasted 5 years and many Russians died during the conflict.

October Bash recognizes this momentous occasion by organizing a White Army vs Red Army PK event. Known as Red October, the 3 week event pits two teams against one another for ultimate glory in battle and chance to be Urban Dead legends. Who will come out the victor and who will get the firing squad?
