Louisville Zombie Walk Owes the City Big!

Organizers of the annual Louisville Zombie Attack only have to pay the city for half of the cost associated with cleaning up a significant amount of garbage their event left along Bardstown Road this year.

The mess drew heavy criticism from Highlands residents and business owners, and Mayor Greg Fischer’s office, which warned Zombie Attack — where thousands dress up and wear makeup pretending to be the undead — that the city would have to reconsider the annual zombie walk if those problems are not addressed….

Fantasy Fest Masquerade March – Anything Goes!

Zombie Things to do, Zombie Walks By October 6, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , , No Comments

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — Revelers dressed as leering evildoers, stalwart action heroes and other captivating characters are to parade through Key West’s historic Old Town Friday, Oct. 25, during the anything-goes Fantasy Fest Masquerade March.

The march is a highlight of the annual pre-Halloween festival scheduled Oct. 18-27. Themed “Super Heroes, Villains… & Beyond,” Fantasy Fest features more than 40 colorful events for masked and costumed partiers.

The masquerade march typically draws spirited bands and merrymakers wearing everything from feathered masks and dazzling costumes to finery inspired by the annual festival theme.

Free to enter and watch, the 2013 promenade is to start at 5 p.m. at the Key West Cemetery’s Frances Street entrance. Participants are to proceed along two routes, stopping for libations at bed-and-breakfast inns along the way.

festSpectators typically line the streets of Key West’s historic district, applauding and sometimes joining in, before the march reaches its end at the Fantasy Fest Street Fair on mile-long Duval Street.

Past years’ participants have included wild-eyed zombies in tattered garb, a male quartet in matching Wonder Woman costumes and a group of “crab people” wearing little more than oversized orange “claws.”

The march is a prelude to the annual festival highlight, the Oct. 26 Captain Morgan Fantasy Fest Parade through Key West’s downtown district. The glittering procession is to include dozens of elaborately decorated floats, costumed marching groups and high-energy island-style bands.

Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who on Sept. 2 became the first person to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys without a shark cage, is to be the parade’s grand marshal.

Springtime Zombie Crawl Brooklyn – This May 27th!

Zombie Things to do, Zombie Walks By March 21, 2012 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Aside from the Mexico City Zombie Walk that happened in early February, this may be the earliest Zombie walk of the year in a major city. Its the 6th Annual Springtime NYC Zombie Crawl and you know you want to go.
Even if you don’t live in a major city it might be worth visiting just to see something as huge as a Zombie Walk of this magnitude. A collection of undead larger than most town’s entire population, stumbling down the street in search of brains and terrifying the living. The October Zombie Walk in NYC is prospectively larger still, but the Springtime NYC Zombie Crawl is still worth a go if you have hometown Halloween plans.
I would love an excuse like this to return to NYC but alas, by late May, I’ll be visiting England.

If you can make it, it will be yet another great one! Most Zombie Walks make you wait till October so this might fulfill your TWD jonesing for a little while.
