DETAILS:
* Have an obnoxiously garish seasonal sweater? A Santa hat? Elf shoes? Extra tinsel and/or battery-operated lights? Wear ‘em! Holiday attire is very strongly encouraged for all participants. We want our zombies looking festive while we carol through the Gaslamp! Even if it’s something as simple as draping yourself in paper snowflakes :D

* RSVP on Facebook!

* Please come dressed and made-up as a zombie (no masks). If you need makeup/supplies, please visit Gypsy Treasure in La Mesa, and tell ‘em the zombiewalk sent you! They are big supporters of the walk :)

* First 20 zombies to show up between 2:15PM and 2:30PM, in holiday attire, and show proof that they are registered as an organ donor (either ID/license or printout from Donate Life California) will receive a goodybag and limited edition 2010 ZombieWalk:SanDiego holiday ornament! We’ve given different ornaments out every year since 2007, so don’t miss the opportunity to add to your collection! Rumor has it that Zombie Santa may be attending!

* We will also have ZW:SD t-shirts available – you can either pre-purchase them online (email us for details) or get them there. Save on shipping and get one for the favorite undead in your life! Proceeds from t-shirts go toward planning our 5 year anniversary event during Comic-Con 2011. We have sizes small through 2XL.

* We ask that you please familiarize yourselves with the walk guidelines, before arriving at the walk. This is important to make sure we have a walk that is fun and safe for everyone involved… and ensures our ability to continue holding zombiewalks in San Diego!

* As always, the walk is all-ages and free of charge to participate.

* Public transportation (SDMTS) is readily available in the area. There is also plenty of parking at various structures and lots nearby (Horton Plaza is free for a few hours, with validation, which can be obtained at specific parking kiosks throughout the mall). We strongly urge use of public transportation or carpooling.

NEXT WALK: Sat. April 17th – Downtown San Diego

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

In conjunction with Kingdom-Con – a new gaming convention here in San Diego, being held at Town and Country Resort and Convention Center – ZombieWalk:SanDiego’s next walk will be in downtown San Diego, on Saturday, April 17th, 2010. The walk will be followed by a costume contest and live music at Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in Fashion Valley. More information on music and convention festivities can be found at the Kingdom-Con website.

We will be meeting at 5:00PM near the fountain, on the corner of 4th Avenue & Broadway, in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. The walk will begin promptly at 5:15PM. We will be shambling through the Gaslamp Quarter. We ask that you please familiarize yourselves with the walk guidelines, before arriving at the walk. This is important to make sure we have a walk that is fun and safe for everyone involved! As always, the walk is all-ages and free of charge to participate. The walk is open to EVERYONE, not just convention attendees!

Please come dressed and made-up as a zombie (no masks). If you need assistance with zombie makeup, there will be a makeup table set up at Kingdom-Con for attendees of the convention. If you’d prefer to do it yourself, we always advise people to visit Gypsy Treasure in La Mesa.

Public transportation (SDMTS) is readily available from Fashion Valley, for attendees of the convention, to the downtown area. You can visit their trip planner at http://www.sdmts.com – two viable routes we’ve found are:
Option A – Trolley:
1. ARRIVE AT FASHION VALLEY TRANSIT CENTER
2. At 04:03 PM take the Green Line Old Town
3. Get off the stop on Old Town Transit Center at East Platform at approximately 04:10 PM.
4. walk 0.1 mile S from Old Town Transit Center & East Platform to Old Town Transit Center at West Platform
5. At 04:30 PM take the Blue Line San Ysidro
6. Get off the stop at America Plaza Station at approximately 04:41 PM.
7. At 04:47 PM take the Orange Line Downtown/Conv Ctr
8. Get off the stop at Convention Center Station at approximately 04:51 PM.
9. Walk up 1st street, toward Horton Plaza, make a right at Broadway.
10. Arrive at 4th & Broadway.
Option B – Bus:
1. ARRIVE AT FASHION VALLEY TRANSIT CENTER
2. At 04:21 PM take the MTS BUS route 20 Downtown via Fashion Valley
3. Get off the stop on 10th Av at Broadway at approximately 04:35 PM.
4. Walk 0.6 mile W on Broadway.
5. Arrive at 4th & Broadway.

There is also plenty of parking around the meet-up location, downtown. Parking validation in the Horton Plaza structure is free for three hours, when shopping at Horton Plaza between 7am and 9pm. They do NOT allow zombies on-property, though. Security will quickly escort you outside. So we’re just passing along that info, should you choose to use it or not.

See maps for location details…
