On Saturday, hundreds of zombies will be gathering in Goodale Park at 3pm to participate in the annual Zombie Walk. So bust out your best zombie costume and participate! The walk will take place up and down High Street, mostly in the Short North. Bring your camera if you want to document the insanity!

Here are some details from last year, the official myspace page, a whole slew of photos from last year, and even a video from last year on YouTube.

    Question is, will the pirates show up for a counter-demonstration?

    “What do we want?”

    “BRAAAAAINS!”

    “When do we want it?”

    “… BRAAAAAAAINS!”

    Is this one of those things that doesn’t even register on the unintentional comedy scale?

    I didn’t know there was the three-way battle for supremacy between ninjas, pirates and zombies. Didn’t realize zombies cared enough.

    One of my friends participates in this one and has a ball with it. It’s tempting, but I’m allergic to the latex makeup required to have decaying flesh.

    I took pictures last year. It’s a really fun event. The faces on the patrons of Hyde Park’s patio are priceless. There’s a lot going for the zombie walk, but it’s worth going down just to see that alone.

    Those zombies need some acting lessons. Why put on all that makeup only to walk down the street with a half-assed zombie attitude?

    We’ve already been invaded, people. :shock: I saw a bunch of the undead with Zombie Army Productions[/url] gear checking into the Hyatt Regency this morning. There goes the neighborhood…

    Who says you need latex to have decaying flesh? :roll:

    Does Yankee Trader sponsor this? Kinda like Hallmark sponsoring Sweetest Day?

    Not all of us can pull off that “Thriller” dance number.

    In response to the ‘acting lessons’ guy: This is an event for everyone. I met several people last year who had NEVER done ANYTHING like it before. No make-up. No acting. Nothing. I think the less theatrical it is, the less serious people will take it, and the more fun it will be. Just my opinion.

    Anyone mention this is also a food drive? Cans, not brains. We’re accepting donations for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.

    Hope to see some of you there! Ninjas, pirates… No matter. Add a little fake blood and a nice slow stagger and you’ll fit right in!

    Oh DAMN! What a brilliant idea. Unfortunately, it’s probably too late… but some specials made from (say) lamb’s brains would be totally awesome.

    I feel stupider for having had to witness this . . .

    Maybe this makes me a bit of a curmudgeon.

    I can live with that.

    I wish I would have read this thread before going downtown this afternoon, I just about broke out my Zombie Survival Kit and went medieval on some zombies. Luckily, one of the zombies had a camera and I was all like ‘Wait a darn minute here, zombies don’t have cameras!’ Crisis averted.

    :D

    This was the most fun I’ve had in a long time!!! The only truly scary part was the dude in the wheelchair weaving in and out of traffic eating bloody boogers. He almost became a real, live dead guy several times.

    we were walking through the park this afternoon and checked out some zombie action. At one point they had zombie killers vs zombies. A bunch of people dressed in military gear shooting fake guns at zombies. If I didn’t know this event was happening I would have thought I was having a bad acid trip. Highlight of the zombie killing… one of the killers tried to get the crowd to shout the marine corp “who ah!” nobody said anything execpt me…. I just shouted “Braiiiiiinnnnnssss” everyone laughed…. good zombie times.
