The New Jersey Zombie Walk is rising for the 5th anniversary of the apocalypse on Saturday, October 6th 2012! The undead outbreak was born in Asbury Park in 2008, and every year since the zombie horde has tripled in size, rocketing the event further and further towards a total citywide takeover... which is exactly what will happen this milestone year!
THE NEW JERSEY ZOMBIE WALK IS OCTOBER 6TH
The Zombie Walk is on Saturday and is (as always) TOTALLY FREE! We’ll have a Base Camp set up on the Asbury Park Boardwalk beginning at 10AM. Our team of professional artists will once again be offering Zombie Makeovers for a nominal ticket fee, or you can get bloody in the DIY makeup area and Blood Bath on the beach. The Zombie Walk will begin at 5:00PM as we shamble towards Downtown Asbury Park!
THE UNDEAD FESTIVAL IS ALL DAY LONG!
The Asbury Park Boardwalk will be transformed into a post-apocalyptic wonderland for the day as the Undead Festival takes over the entire Boardwalk, including the Casino and Grand Arcade! We’re working on a final schedule for the event that will include dozens of horror-themed vendors, zombie costume & cosplay contests, haunting music.. thrilling dance performances.. special screenings and sneak peeks at some of the hottest new zombie films, shows and video games.. after parties and MUCH MUCH MORE!
