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

  1. How do you follow up a wildly successful Zombie Walk in Pittsburgh? By attempting to set a record for the world’s largest gathering of zombies.

    On the decomposed heels of Pittsburgh’s first official Zombie Walk last month, The It’s Alive Show (airing Saturdays at 10 PM on WBGN) is organizing an attempt to set a Guinness record for the world’s largest zombie gathering. The event will take place on Sunday, October 29, 2006 from 10 AM to noon at Monroeville Mall, site of George Romero’s classic film, Dawn of the Dead.

    All participants will be encouraged to bring non-perishable food items which will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Zombies will walk through the mall and exit into the parking lot for a photo to be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.
