The dead will rise (again) to feed their instincts for a cult-classic zombie parade at the 6th Annual Roosevelt Road Zombie Walk & Pub Crawl on Saturday, October 24 starting at 6:00 pm at Culver’s (6943 W Roosevelt Rd). The event will feature zombie make-up, a pub crawl, food and an after-party at FitzGerald’s designed to rival even your fondest memories of Thriller.
Participation in the event is $20 pre-pay or $25 at the door. Tickets include admission, exclusive drink specials for the zombified, make-up and food provided at the after-party. The first 100 to purchase tickets will receive a FREE special edition commemorative t-shirt!
Registration/Crawl will start at Culver’s and stop at Lucky’s (1st stop includes a free photo opp later uploaded to FB), Nonna D’s Osteria & Pizzeria (free slice of pizza!), 12th Street Rag, Commodore Barry Post 256, The Winners Circle Cafe & Lounge, Paparazzi, Wire, Friendly Tap and FitzGerald’s Nightclub.
The Zombie Walk is founded on the participation of Halloween-lovers willing to take their zombie motif to the limit. To help with this endeavor, the horror and sci-fi destination shop Horrorbles will sponsor make-up and costume staging from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at Culver’s. In the true spirit of the un-dead, the reanimated horde will be led in silence by the Grim Reaper on a pub-crawl that will overtake local bars along the road. FitzGerald’s will host the catered after party. Once the crawl is over, zombies can resume their search for brains at their favorite Berwyn haunts until the late hours of the evening!
A portion of the event proceeds will support Berwyn Arts & Music (BAM). Food at the after-party will be donated by Autre Monde Cafe & Spirits, Buona Restaurant, Culver’s, Di Nico’s Pizzeria & Gelato, Turano’s Mamma Susi Bakeshop, Vesecky’s Bakery and Wing Boss.
This event is brought to you by the Roosevelt Road Special Events Commission of the BDC. This event is sponsored in part by Horrorbles, Berwyn 8th Ward Alderman Nora Laureto and the Veltway Corporation.
