Zombies Will Walk for Food

You’ve heard of the zombie movie Shaun of the Dead, but what about an official Zombie Crawl? In San Jose, California, on August 31st, 2011, Zombies are wandering the streets in the yearly festival – Zombie-O-Rama. The event features live music by Brass Hysteria, a Zombie Fashion Show, costume contests and parades and the screening of a new Zombie movie – Fido.

Of course the main event is the Zombie Crawling itself, in which groups of Zombies are spread out across the area in fifteen minute intervals unleashed on the unsuspecting public as they crawl and writhe across the Gore Park and the downtown area in their full Zombie attire.

Zombie walks and festivals of this nature are becoming more popular and many of them are held in cities around the U.S. in connection with a fundraising event for local food bank charities. In 2006, almost one thousand zombies gathered in Pittsburgh, PA, setting a world record for the Guinness Book of Records while collecting a tremendous amount of canned food for the Community Food Bank. This festival in Pittsburgh has grown throughout the years and is now called Zombie Fest. Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia and other major cities have since broken this attendance record with zombie events of their own featuring over seven thousand zombies in appearance. The Zombie Fests continue to evolve each year adding new features and entertainment in each city with pub crawls, movie screenings, fashion shows and continued involvement with raising money and awareness for the food banks in each city.

  1. I know you’re absolutely right about the growing “zombie” thing … I just don’t get it. I mean I have to admit I’m a fan of the Walking Dead, but otherwise I never got into zombie movies because of all the blood and guts. I love, love, love scary movies, and I don’t mind a little blood for the sake of the plot – but to me what’s scary is a good story with suspense, lots of twists and turns and not being able to guess the end 5 minutes into the movie. Odd I know, oh well.
