Photo of last year's Zombie Walk, a part of Zombiefest, which will be held this weekend, October 25 - 26 at the Monroeville Mall, in Monroeville, PA. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the movie Dawn of the Dead, considered by many to be the ultimate zombie film (personally, I have to place it second behind Shaun of the Dead).
Visit Zombiefest Saturday from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm for makeup demonstrations, bands such as Venus in Furs and the Legendary Hucklebucks, movies such as The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies, and much more! Admission is FREE!!
Sunday, World Zombie Day, begins with the Zombie walk, which earned Pittsburgh a second world record in 2007 with 1,098 zombies. Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
All events are hosted by The It's Alive Show and are open to all, zombie or otherwise.
I'll be vending in costume, along with a few fellow team members of the Etsy Pittsburgh Street Team. As an undead girl, I just want to have fun too, but no, I won't be a zombified Cyndi Lauper -- I'll be a zombified Marilyn Monroe. Yes, I died several years ago, but what few people realize is that I was bitten by a zombie and have been roaming around cemeteries ever since. I usually only roam under cover of darkness but will be making an exception to attend the Zombiefest to search for a fresh source of brains. See you there............bring your brain.
