10 Reasons to Zombie Walk

zombie-walk-4It’s not like you really need a reason to act like an limping, brain-hungry menace while covered in blood, but just in case you feel the need to justify your attendance at Zombie Walk 4 on October 27 we’ve put together a list of reasons. Very, very good reasons.

10. Four Peaks Beer.

Imagine: you’re covered in makeup, your clothes are bloodstained, you feel like you’ve been dead for hundreds of years and, oh wait, what’s this? Cold beer from Four Peaks? What a perfect day.

9. Because Alice Cooper is doing it.

8. March with a Zombie hoard – right down Central Avenue.

Ever wanted to stop traffic on Central Avenue with a 10,000 strong zombie hoard? Us too. So this year, we are. Be there at dusk.

7. Great deals and free parking for zombies.

If you’re dressed like a zombie (and you are) you’ll get free parking at the CityScape garages all day.

Bonus: Copper Blues is hosting an UN-Dead Party and those dressed as a zombie get 15% off their drink tab. Blue Hound is selling their Stumblebum’s Downfall cocktail (Scarlet Ibis Rum, Wrey and Nephew Overproof Rum, grapefruit, lime, passion fruit and cinnamon) for $5. The Strand is offering happy hour from 2 p.m. to close and Gypsy and Lucky Strike Lanes will be zombie-friendly hotspots.

6. You get to dress like this. And, instead of judgment you could win a prize.

5. Zombie Carnage Carnival.

Laser tag with zombies. No, we aren’t making this up.

4. Because, as these students discovered, if you aren’t a zombie now you’ll be one soon enough.

3. Arizona Science Center Little Zombie Zone.

Little zombies are going to have some seriously scary fun at this family friendly festival. From learning about acids and bases while making Bloody Handprints to improv classes on how to walk like a zombie, the Little Zombie Zone will keep those adorable little flesh eaters busy and content right up until the walk starts.

2. Because zombies are people too.

1. St. Mary’s Food Banks needs our help.

Zombies may be undead, but they still care. With shelves running low and food needs climbing, St. Mary’s is in desperate need of our help. Last year, zombies donated 2 tons of food – this year we’re aiming to double that.

Bonus: A canned food donation gets you a few minutes with a makeup artist to help with your zombie transformation.
