5th Anniversary Comic-Con Zombiewalk & Party!

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

This year marks the FIFTH anniversary of America’s Finest Undead shuffling through the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter during Comic-Con! At 5:30PM, on Saturday, July 23rd, zombies from all over will be gathering in San Diego to take over the nerdiest place on Earth… and feast on their brains!

Before you head to the walk, be sure to check out the ALL-AGES PRE-PARTY from 2:30PM – 5:00PM at House of the Undead, presented by the House of Blues & FEARnet, with tunes from Zombie Surf Camp, a costume contest with awesome prizes, a blood-soaked photobooth, drink specials for the 21+ crowd, delicious nommables, giveaways galore (Haunted Hotel, Butterfinger, Pop Chips, ThinkGeek, Humerus, Zombie Ranch, The Walking Dead Board Game, Iron Fist Clothing, Gypsy Treasure Costume & Makeup, and more!), and a rotting good time!

Our initial meeting location is set to be the courtyard area next to Horton Plaza, outside of Sam Goody, at the corner of 4th & Broadway – where we’ve met for all of our Comic-Con walks. This area is large, easy to locate, and quick to get to from the Convention Center.


[click any image to enlarge it]

* As always, the walk is ALL-AGES and FREE of charge to participate. The walk is open to everyone, not just convention attendees! Remember… the more the scarier! This is the perfect way to participate in the fun of Comic-Con without actually entering the convention itself, as you get to dress up and be among fun-loving and entertaining individuals from all backgrounds. This is why we putting the walk together year after year!

* Please come dressed and made-up as a zombie. If you need makeup/supplies, please visit Gypsy Treasure, in La Mesa, and tell ’em the zombiewalk sent you!

* We strongly encourage you to get creative with your own outfit & makeup BEFORE the walk, as we will not have first-come-first-serve makeup and will only be able to accommodate a limited number of participants prior to the walk due to time constraints. We will have makeup artists and hair stylists to assist with makeup and hair for A SELECT LUCKY FEW! If you want the chance to have your hair & makeup done by professionals, please follow us on Twitter @sdzombiewalk. We will be holding contests starting MONDAY, JULY 18th and throughout the week, on TWITTER ONLY!

* The meeting location is within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center. If you’re coming from other locations around San Diego, public transportation (SDMTS) is readily available. There are also MANY parking lots in the area, but their pricing will be high and spaces are limited. We strongly urge use of public transportation or carpooling.

Please be sure to check out our walk guidelines. They are important to make sure we have a walk that is fun & safe for everyone involved and/or watching… and ensures our ability to continue holding zombiewalks in San Diego. We’ve had a great five years, so let’s make sure we can have many more!

You can also follow us on Twitter for up to the minute news! We’ll see you on July 23rd!
