Breaking news: a highly contagious infection has contaminated the Elmwood Village. A flesh eating virus spread to humans after an infected monkey bit a scientist, wait, no, a massive green cloud of poisonous gas has moved over the city and, hold on, an official government source now claims that hell has overflowed with the souls of the dead due to a hole in the space-time continuum…Well it doesn’t really matter how it happened because the fact is; the zombie apocalypse is here. On Saturday (July 10) all living, dead and living dead are invited to the Buffalo Zombie Walk & Pub Crawl. Since 2001 zombie walks have infected victims from all over the world. From Canada to Australia and the United Kingdom, mobs of oozing, limping and moaning zombies as big as 5000 have united to share in their love of gore. Don’t bring your shotguns or rocket launchers though, all the zombies on this walk are friendly. Any undead interested in walking must meet beforehand at either Maddtat2 or Guerilla Gallery on Elmwood Avenue to register as a zombie or victim. Registered walkers will be eligible for prizes and giveaways. Contests include “most original zombie,” “sexiest zombie” and “king and queen zombies,” as well as others. The walk begins at 1 p.m. in Bidwell Park and ends in Allentown at 4 p.m. At 6 p.m. the pub crawl starts for zombies ages 21 and up. Visit each bar on the crawl to win additional prizes. $1 per zombie, per event. Don’t forget to practice the zombie shuffle, apply a generous amount of open wounds to your face and eat your daily serving of BRAAAAAINS!
