Halloween, hell October, is my favorite time of year. This is the first time I’ve lived in a city where the fever is permeating in the same respect that it does for me. Anyone in the greater Pittsburgh area should take part in this:

Pittsburgh’s first ever Zombie Walk

All horror enthusiasts are formally invited to participate in Pittsburgh’s first ever Zombie Walk. The event will take place in Pittsburgh’s South Side on September 22, 2006.


7:30 PM – All Zombies report to The Town Tavern
Apply make up if you haven’t already. Spotlight Costume will be there to apply zombie make up for anyone who needs it. Practice saying “Braaaiiinnnss….need braaaiiinnnnssss”.
Early arrivals – The Town Tavern ‘s happy hour is from 6:00 to 8:00 PM

8:00 PM – Begin Walk.
Zombies exit Town Tavern and shamble about for a period of one hour. Eat, drink, explore the shops, but when on the street you must stay in Zombie Mode.
(See Rules of Conduct & “What is a Zombie Walk”)

9:00 PM – Zombies Disperse.
The Zombie Walk is over. But wait! There’s more…The cast from It’s Alive, Pittsburgh’s own Horror Host TV show will be appearing at The Rex Theater (about 3 blocks from The Town Tavern) after the walk.
Showtime will be 9:00 PM

Festivities at The Rex will include:

Filming of the It’s Alive Halloween Show; The Comedy Stylings of Stiffy The Dead Clown; Performances by the bands DEATHMOBILE and The Forbidden 5; and a special screening of Night of the Living Dead,
Uninterrupted and in its entirety, sponsored by George A. Romero’s Fright Nights.
