While not totally a conference or film fest, but it should definitely be a great time for all horror fans. My friends over at The New Jersey Zombie Walk are kicking off the summer season with an awesome event. In celebration of our 2010 Guinness Record achievement as the “Largest Gathering of Zombies in the World” we will be hosting our first ever “Zombie Beach Party” in Asbury Park! On Saturday, May 28th zombies will once again converge on the Asbury Boardwalk as we kickoff the summer beach season and Memorial Day weekend.
This retro themed event will b...ring beach goers and zombie lovers back in time by invoking the spirit of the clasc beach party films of the 1960’s. Beach activities will include games like brain volleyball, legless limbo, intestine-twister, zombie hula contests and more!
The event will also feature an amusement midway - a throwback to Palace Amusements and the games and boardwalk attractions that are part of Asbury Park’s history. Zombies can play traditional carnival games with an undead twist including a zombie dunk tank, a kisng (biting) booth, brain dart toss, and “Aim for the Head.” Players will have a chance to win an assortment of festive zombified prizes.
Wristbands will be available for $10 and will include a beach badge for the day, discounts on all midway games, and special savings at restaurants, bars and food stands down the full length of the boardwalk and throughout the entire city. A small team of profesonal make-up artists will also be on hand from noon until 5pm to give demonstrations and asst in giving complete zombie makeovers for a nominal fee of $15 for airbrushing with an additional $10 for scabs/wounds).
