Lorain County Zombie Walk
To stop the outbreak of hunger in Lorain County!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A Zombie walk is where people come together to donate, dress in full zombie makeup, and walk like zombies throughout a town. The zombie walk is for zombies of all ages and is family-friendly as well as for the older crowd; we encourage participation from anyone who is interested in letting go of reality for a couple hours and having a great time for a great cause.
Church Street Bar and Grill is the prime location for registration, food donation, and make-up application for participating zombies who need assistance. Along with the food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank in Lorain County we are having Life Share Blood Mobile as the “Vaccination Zone.” So Please make sure you plan to include this as part of your visit during the Walk 🙂
Admission: $5.00 plus 2 non-perishable food items
Walk Starts Promptly at 3:00PM
Although we encourage you to arrive in full make-up –
Don’t worry! We will have several FX Make-up & air brush Artists available starting at 11:00am for an additional fee of $5.00 for those Zombies needing assistance. Make-up application will be located on the outdoor patio @ Church Street Bar & Grill.
Make-up application starts at 11:00am thru 2pm.
What to expect from a Zombie Walk you ask??? During the Walk, all participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies, lurching, shambling, dragging limbs and communicating only in a zombie-like manner (such as grunting, groaning, moaning and slurred calls for “brains”.) Some participants occasionally dress up as soldiers who are called in to contain the outbreak, or survivors who are trying to defend themselves from the onslaught of the zombie hoard. It’s a great fun afternoon while raising awareness for our community and local charity.
If you’re joining us on the walk or just wanting to watch the walk, please review our WALK RULES/GUIDELINES! This will keep things safe & fun for everyone!
Our first annual Zombie Walk in Amherst brought in $1445.61 and 1,143lbs of food making this walk the 3rd highest one day food drive in Lorain County for 2011; equivalent to 8,000lbs of food! Last year we had such a great time organizing the zombie walk, we decided to continue to raise awareness and give back to the community annually. Please join us September 1st, 2012 in downtown Amherst, Ohio for the biggest food collection YET!
