Few interesting facts about Zombie walk world wide!
A zombie walk (also known as a zombie mob, zombie march, zombie horde, zombie lurch, zombie shamble, zombie shuffle,zombie monsta-mash, zombie irrigation, zombie hurricane or zombie crawl) is an organized public gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes. Usually taking place in an urban center, the participants make their way around the city streets and through shopping malls to a public space (or a series of taverns in the case of a zombie pub crawl) in a somewhat orderly fashion.
The first zombie walk world record was set on 29 October 2006 at Monroeville Mall outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during Pittsburgh’s first annual ‘Walk of the Dead.’ Guinness World Records certified that 894 people participated in the walk. The second zombie walk at Monroeville Mall during the 2007 Zombie Fest was also verified by Guinness World Records as the largest gathering of zombies to date (28 October 2007), with 1,028 participants. In November 2011, Mexico broke a new world record for largest zombie gathering. Guinness officially counted 9,806 participants, surpassing the previous record established by Asbury Park, New Jersey.
Charity work continues to be a common component at zombie walks across the planet. Community service organizations have used zombie walks as demonstrations to raise funds and awareness for local and global issues, such as world hunger. Both world record walks at Pittsburgh’s Zombie Fest have included food drives. In 2008, The It’s Alive Show (the organizers of Zombie Fest), initiated World Zombie Day. The It’s Alive Show encouraged cities all over the globe to celebrate World Zombie Day by holding zombie walks to raise awareness of global hunger. The first World Zombie Day took place 26 October 2008; the same day as Pittsburgh’s Zombie Fest. More than 30 cities worldwide took part in this day of global zombie walking. Food drives for local hunger-related charities took place at each participating city’s zombie walk. Pittsburgh’s walk alone brought in more than one ton of food to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The second World Zombie Day took place 11 October 2009 with even more participation from cities all over the world.
