JUSTICE!

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Last Friday, there was a court conference to set a trial date for the lawsuits. During the conference, the judge dismissed Zombie Walk : San Diego from the lawsuits, with prejudice, which means we did nothing untoward and the legal system recognizes this.

From the bottom of my undead heart, thank you for sticking it out, zombies. You’ve been unfalteringly awesome throughout the last 3+ years and I couldn’t have pulled through without you. Additionally, thank you to my attorney for stepping up to take on this case, so that I can finally move on with my life and our community can get back to doing what we do best: being America’s Finest Zombies!

With that said… expect another post later tonight with information about October! :D

ZOMBIEWALK INFORMATION…

Where: We’ll be starting the walk from Children’s Park, near the corner of Island Avenue & 1st Avenue in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. 
When: Saturday, July 26th, 2014; meet at 5:00PM and we walk at 5:15PM.
Ages: All ages, from 3 months to 3 centuries! The zombiewalk is open to everyone who shows up as the undead. Bring your grandparents, bring your kids, bring your dog! Remember… the more the scarier!
Price: The zombiewalk has always been and will always be FREE!
How: 
– Please come dressed and made-up as a zombie. If you need makeup/supplies, please visit Gypsy Treasure, in La Mesa, and tell ‘em ZOMBIEWALK:SANDIEGO sent you… they may hook you up, if you do!
– Do NOT bring extra blood/anything messy to the meeting location with you. You may NOT leave blood on the ground in or near the meeting location. You will be asked to leave if you are seen doing so. Please respect our local community. Being a “zombie” does not excuse you from common courtesy.
– We strongly encourage you to get creative with your own outfit & makeup BEFORE the walk as there will be NO onsite assistance with zombification.
– 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 seven years, so let’s make sure we can have many more!

More details for the walk will be added as we get closer to each event.

Please RSVP on Facebook to get updates.
We will also update here, but up-to-date info is always there!


OTHER FAQ:

Q: Where can I best view the zombies?
A: We generally stick to 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter. For these walks, we highly suggest patronizing one of the MANY fine eating establishments along 5th Avenue and asking for patio seating. You will get a GREAT view of the zombies and enjoy a delicious meal at the same time!

Q: Where can I get my makeup done?
A: On Saturday, July 26th, from 10:30am until 4:00pm, makeup artists will be available to assist you with basic zombification for a small fee ($10-20) at the Zombie Apocalypse Store Pop-up Shop, downstairs at The Haunted Hotel. Tipping the artists is strongly encouraged, as the fee goes to cover supplies. This is first come, first serve.

Q: I’m a member of the media and want to do a story on the zombiewalk… who do I contact?
A: Please send all media inquiries to sdzombiewalk[at]gmail.com and we will get back to you ASAP. Yes, we are happy to do appearances and interviews!

Q: Are you that zombie run at Petco Park?
Nope, we are not The Walking Dead Escape; we don’t charge for our walk and never will. That’s a completely separate event and not us, but we dig what they do!

Q: Where can I keep up with updates on the zombiewalk and events following the walk?
A: RSVP on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter for up to the minute news! We’ll see you on July 26th!

America’s Finest Zombies Want YOU!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

America’s Finest Undead are looking for America’s FINEST zombie! Well, two of them to be exact. We need two of the best zombies Comic-Con has to offer to help lead our horde through the streets of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter for our 7th Annual Comic-Con Zombiewalk. Think you have what it takes?

If you’re attending our walk on Saturday, July 20th, you’re eligible to participate in this opportunity! Between now (yes, RIGHT NOW) and 11:59PM (Pacific) on Sunday, June 30th, we want you to show us, with photographic evidence, why you should be at the front of the undead pack. You will need to zombify yourself and pick a creative way to show us you’re the best representative of America’s Finest Zombies. Have your zombie alter ego lead a crowd of zombies (or living) through your town… attend a concert and crowd surf… shake the President’s hand… win a spelling bee… whatever it is you think shows off your abilities to exemplify the best our horde has to offer. Invade your town with your rotting charisma and charm the brains out of them… then take a picture!

We will select one zombie participant from Twitter and one zombie from Facebook. You may submit once on Twitter and once on Facebook (two submissions maximum per person), but the scenarios must be different for each submission. These two zombies will have the following bestowed upon them:

  • Official title of 2013 San Diego Zombiewalk Grand Marshall with an official sash declaring your position to the world!
  • Zombie prize pack including a zombiewalk t-shirt and a plethora of goodies from our partners! (List will be updated throughout the month.)
  • A private zombie makeup tutorial, either in person (SoCal residents only) or via Skype, from an industry SFX professional!
  • The opportunity to be at the front of the horde during the walk… that’s right, you’ll be the first zombies everyone sees as we shuffle and shamble through downtown San Diego!

To participate, you must be 18 years of age or older. Parents/guardians may submit a photograph on behalf of a child, but the parent/guardian must accompany the minor during the full walk. You don’t need a Comic-Con badge to participate and no purchase is necessary. Transportation and to/from the event and accommodations will not be provided. You must “Like” our page on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter (and still be doing so, as of the event) to be eligible.

To submit via Facebook:

  • Go to http://www.facebook.com/sdzombiewalk.
  • In the area to post to our wall, click “Photo/Video” and post your eligible photo along with a description of the photo (location, scenario, etc.).
  • Tag yourself in the photo and tag us in the photo.
  • We’ll post it our gallery. The picture that has the most “likes” by 11:59PM (Pacific) on Sunday, June 30th will be declared the winner, amongst the Facebook submissions.
  • If the winner is unable to attend and/or participate in the walk, the zombie picture with the next highest amount of “likes” at the deadline will take their place (and so on, if the top “like” receivers are unable to attend/participate).
  • To vote for an entry, go to our album “America’s Finest Zombie! Pick YOUR Walk Leader for SDCC 2013!” on Facebook and “like” the one zombie you feel best represents America’s Finest Undead.

To submit via Twitter:

  • Publicly tweet your eligible photo using your account on Twitter.com (make sure your account isn’t private or we will likely not see your submission).
  • Mention us (@sdzombiewalk) in the tweet and use the hashtag #sdcczombies
  • Describe the location and scenario in the photo.
  • We will RT all submissions.
  • The submissions via Twitter will be reviewed by a panel of judges – Barb S., fearless leader of When Nerds Attack (@SDCCnerdsattack / Facebook); Gregory Burkart, writer (FEARnet) & composer;  Jennifer Muzquiz, director of ZombieWalk:SanDiego – and based on creativity, enthusiasm, and whom the judges feel best exemplifies the spirit of Comic-Con and ZombieWalk:SanDiego… a winner will be chosen!
  • If the winner is unable to attend and/or participate in the walk, a runner-up will take their place (and so on, if the top “like” receivers are unable to attend/participate).

By submitting a photo via Twitter or Facebook, you are giving us permission to post them on our Twitter account (@sdzombiewalk), Facebook page (facebook.com/sdzombiewalk), and our website (sdzombiewalk.com), as well as using your likeness for promotional purposes. Full credit for the photograph will be given. All minors must have a parent or guardian submit a photo for them or they will be deemed ineligible. We reserve the right to void any submission not meeting our content standards as well as voiding any winner deemed to be manipulating/cheating/gaming the voting process unfairly. ZombieWalk:SanDiego are not affiliated with Comic-Con or Comic-Con International. ZombieWalk:SanDiego are not responsible for any technical errors, natural acts, or other factors which may prevent you from participating. No monetary compensation or substitutions will be awarded. No monetary value is placed on the winning experience or prize packs. Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 6th via Facebook, Twitter, and on our website.
