The Dead will be walking on Hollywood Blvd in California on August 13th, but it isn’t brains they are looking for while they make their way down the street. Instead of brains and flesh, the zombie horde will be looking to gather school supply donations for local needy school districts.
To join the zombie horde all you have to do is get decked out in your most awesome zombie attire or dressed up as your favorite zombie from a horror film, bring school supplies to donate, and show up on Cherokee Ave. between 5:30 and 6:15pm. After the horde arrives the rules will be read before the walk begins at 6:30pm.
The walking dead in California have quite a few rules they must abide by including not ‘scaring’ anyone by lunging, yelling, or touching. As part of a performance art piece, each participant must stay in character by looking, acting and walking like a brain-dead zombie for the walk duration. Those not in costume will have to follow the Undead in the group following.
There are a few other rules for the So.Cal Zombie Walk that should be read before joining the horde. If you feel you can’t follow the rules, just show up to make a school supply donation or buy a zombie walk t-shirt, stickers or buttons for a small donation.
So.Cal’s Zombie Walk is open to all ages and kid friendly as in the language is asked to be watched, no drinking is allowed and the horde will be kept to the sidewalk. To find out more visit So.Cal Zombie Walk’s website and their Facebook page.
