2017 Asbury Park Zombie Walk

THE ZOMBIE WALK WILL TAKE PLACE
ON OCTOBER 7TH RAIN OR SHINE

Are you ready to stumble the streets of Asbury Park in the name of a zombie's favorite thing...BRAINS?

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

Guinness Book World Record™ Holder? Yes we are! Guinness World Records™ has officially recognized the New Jersey Zombie Walk hosted in Asbury Park as the holder of the record for the "World's Largest Gathering of Zombies." Our 2010 walk made history as 4,093 zombies shambled across the boardwalk and through the city. In 2013 we reclaimed our title as the greatest undead gathering in the world by setting a new record of 9,592 zombies!

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

2:00pm: JELL-O BRAIN EATING CONTEST
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Zombie Walk we're reviving some of our original events! If you think you're the fastest brain eater in the horde, Dark City Brewing Company and Kim Marie's Eat and Drink Away want you to prove it! They're making up dozens of Jell-O brains, and giving out cash prizes to the winners! There will be three races - Kids, Ladies and Gents - The contest will take place directly outside of the Paramount Theatre, spaces are limited so arrive early!

3:00pm: COSTUME CONTEST
Judges walking the Boardwalk will be giving out contestant stickers, if you get one you're a finalist in the Costume Contest! There are cash prizes from Johnny Mac's House of Spirits for Best Child, Adult, Couple and Group costumes. Finalist spaces are limited for each of the four categories, so make sure your costume is outstanding - final judging will take place at the stage in front of Johnny Mac's House of Spirits at the end of the Zombie Walk route.

4:00pm: THE ZOMBIE WALK BEGINS
Zombies gathered on the Asbury Park Boardwalk in full costume will begin lurching down the Boardwalk from Convention Hall, towards the Carousel House. From there, they will turn and head up Cookman Avenue, shambling towards the Downtown and all the way to Main Street.

4:30pm - 7:00pm: ZOMBIES ARRIVE DOWNTOWN
Undead music from DJs Johnny Catch and Kurt Lopez will rock the end of the Zombie Walk on Cookman Avenue, just before Main Street. Zombie festivities will continue at Johnny Mac's House of Spirits and at local businesses throughout Asbury Park.

7:30pm: UNDEAD AFTER-PARTIES BEGIN
Formal events conclude, Zombie Walk after-parties at various locations throughout town continue the fun in to the late night! Don't miss the Official After-Party of the 2017 Asbury Park Zombie Walk at Johnny Mac's House of Spirits!

ZOMBIE BLOOD DRIVE
Zombies are asked to lend a severed hand to a good cause. The Central Jersey Blood Center will again be hosting their Zombie Blood Drive. They'll be parked outside the Paramount Theatre, ready for the undead to donate their blood (before it coagulates).

ZOMBIE WALK BEER
Zombie Walk now has it's own beer! Dark City Brewing Company, in collaboration with Zombie Walk creator, Jason Meehan, brewed a pumpkin ale called simply, "Zombie Walk." The beer is a biscuity amber ale, lightly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, and allspice. Look for "Zombie Walk" at the Dark City Brewing Company tasting room and locations throughout town during the Zombie Walk.
