Zombie-Walk in Wilkes-Barre?
Great news, someone found this blog and is interested in getting it done! We have a plan, and that plan it to come up with a plan. Couple of thoughts on the organizing the walk from random informal discussion:
- Grass roots, word of mouth and flyers
- Domain it up, lock up a website
- Focus on a plan

In generala zombie walk (also known as a zombie mob, zombie march, zombie horde, zombie lurch, zombie shamble, zombie shuffle or zombie pub crawl) is an organized public gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes. Usually taking place in an urban centre, the participants make their way around the city streets and through shopping malls in a somewhat orderly fashion and often limping their way towards a local cemetery or other public space (a series of taverns in the case of a zombie pub crawl).
All around the civilized world are these new wonderfully fun, safe, exciting and novel events are gaining more and more momentum. Most of them are free and just part of other festivities. Usually the price of participation is being dressed up and a donation to a local food bank. I think am still tryin to research who currently has the current largest “Zombie Walk” according to Guiness. I do not know how long nor any of the officical criteria of a “zombie walk” usually it takes at least two people; and a point A to a point B.
I think the perfect Wilkes-Barre “Zombie Walk” could take place from Kirby Park to Public Square. Imagine seeing a mass of zombies crossing the Market Street Brigdge! Maybe on the last day of the Farmer’s Market? Maybe get the local Univesities involved starting their additions to walk among the new north and south riverside common areas? Maybe a band in public square? Your vendors could make money. Bars can enjoys pub crawls associated with “zombie walks.” A little good publicity for the city, the new river front and local charities and universities. Sounds good? Sounds like something fun and safe and exciting to do?
