I had the pleasure of attending my first ever zombie walk on the weekend, and if you’ve never been I highly recommend it! We had (I think) around 3000 people turn out and fill the streets with zombies – everything from your classic blood covered shamblers to nazi zombies, Pop Cap’s ‘Plants VS Zombies’ game characters, and even zombie dogs, children and babies (!) It was hilarious.
While walking along I must say, it made me think, “how on earth did this event get organised?”. I could picture the conversation between the council and some zombie geeks:
Zombie geeks: “Can we cordon off 4-5 city blocks with some police for an hour or so on a busy Saturday night just so that we can pretend that we are all zombies?”
Council: “Sure why not”
I bet that’s word for word how it went.
Here’s a few shots I took:
