WE’VE COME A LONG WAY

Walking the streets of Asbury Park for OVER TEN YEARS!

THE TWELFTH ANNUAL ZOMBIE WALK IS ON OCTOBER 5TH

THE DEAD STILL WALK HERE


So there’s no of confusion in years to come; The Asbury Park Zombie Walk is held every year on the First Saturday in October. This has been been our tradition for most (though not all) of our eleven years of shambling on the Boardwalk. It is our hope (and dream) that the dead will continue to gather, groan, shuffle and shriek through the streets of Asbury Park the first weekend of October forever... regardless of if you see a post on our social media or an announcement on our website. This year’s Zombie Walk will take place on Saturday, October 5th. Spread the word, tell all the ghouls you know and infect new ones. Then tell them they need to save the date for the First Saturday of next year too, regardless of if we have “officially” organized or announced the event. Because that’s what zombies do, they never die... they just keep coming back. The dead still walk here in Asbury Park, and we hope that they will never stop!


See you soon,


- The Asbury Park Zombie Walk Team

PROFESSIONAL ZOMBIE MAKEOVERS!
Details about how to look your bloody best.

For zombies who want to look truly dead we will have a PRO ZOMBIE FX ARTIST ALLEY at the historic ASBURY PARK CONVENTION HALLwhere ghouls can get a professional makeover for a nominal fee. Since every zombie wants a different look, and some looks are more time consuming than others to apply this year there will be 3 different kinds of zombie makeovers available

For the safety and comfort of everyone visiting Asbury Park this weekend, we have decided that NO PROP WEAPONS will be allowed at this or future Zombie Walks. We're sorry, we know that many people incorporate props into their costume, but from now on weapons are banned. If our staff, security or local police see attendees carrying prop weapons you will be asked to return them to your car or leave the event. No exceptions.

SAFETY BAN ON PROPS
