2011 Zombie Walk, Asbury Park, N.J.

Zombies, the Undead, what I call ‘cool ghouls’, strut their stuff this weekend throught the town of Asbury Park.  The event will be held on October 21, 22 and 23rd, starting at the Convention Center on the boardwalk of Asbury Park, New Jersey.  I’m advised that exactly at 5 PM on Saturday evening, the 22nd, the Zombies will come out from the Convention Center on Asbury Park’s boardwalk.  Downtown Cookman Avenue will be blocked off where a stage will be erected to host a variety of musical acts.

Last year, 4,000 zombies showed up in full regalia, making it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the most zombies ever to gather in one place.  That’s why the  The Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce is now adding this event to its annual calendar.

What is a Zombie Walk?
A zombie walk is an organized public gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes and make their way around city streets or shopping centers in a somewhat orderly fashion for fun and surprise.

There are rules that govern the walk which have been posted by the Chamber of Commerce of Asbury Park:

“All Zombies must respect the City of Asbury Park and refrain from entering any public premises without permission. Zombies must be mindful of their actions (and make-up) so that they do not smear, stain, cause damage to, destroy or vandalize any person or property. Zombies must not block doorways or impede businesses & homeowners. Zombies must also respect others personal space by refraining from touching anyone who is not participating in the Zombie Walk or harassing anyone that wishes to be left alone. Zombies must always stop “attacking” someone when asked to, especially children. Zombies must obey all traffic laws, city ordinances and authorities at all times. If asked to disperse, they must do so immediately. Zombies must stay on the sidewalk or route unless crossing the street. There will be absolutely NO alcohol or illegal substances tolerated during the Walk. Small children and pets must be accompanied by an adult.”

The price of tickets are $30 for the weekend.  Or $15 per day.  There will be face painting and other goulish treats for the not-so-frightened who will attend.  Check out this and more on their Facebook Page.
