Zombies on the prowl in Lawrence tonight!

If you live in or near Lawrence, don't miss tonight's Downtown Lawrence Zombie Walk! The event runs - rather, shambles - from 8:30pm to 10:00pm, with zombies gathering and finishing at the gazebo in South Park. If you plan to become zombified yourself, show up a little early.

Some video evidence of last year's carnage:

Here's a story about last year's event. I'm thinking of watching the walk from the safety of Harbour Lights or perhaps Jackpot Saloon if I can find a table near the window.

Undead fun!

I think you can see me at the 40 second mark, but I'm not much more than a silhouette with long hair.

What a HUGE mob this year! How many showed up?

400+, my attempts to count were much like standing in the middle of a marathon race with a counter trying to figure out how many people were there. But over 400 is a good guess. I'm looking into ways to get a more accurate count next year.

WOW! I knew there were many more than last year, but 400? WOW!

I was going to do zombie walk this year with Ada, but I'm chickening out due to the cold and my persistent cough, which gets worse in the cold.

Your idea is a good one though. I wonder if I could convince _mac_ to stay home with both kids so I can sit in a bar and watch it. Hmmmm...

You should've joined us in the window of Harbour! Awesome perspective... though if it were a real zombie apocalypse, we would've been trapped.

are you going to record it from your place of safety?

I wish I'd have brought my new camera - it has a video setting. Someone (or some-seven of them) made movies, including of the "Thriller" re-enactment. Awesome.

I think I'll try to be there this evening.

I did The Zombie Walk the last 2 years, but this year I had family obligations. (Plus, they made it later on a school night) I hope it was fun!

Too bad - it was a HUGE turnout!
