A history of the zombie outbreak:

THANK YOU ZOMBIES!!


Thank you for coming out to the 9th Annual Asbury Park Zombie Walk! On Saturday, October 1st you continued the tradition of bringing the dead back to life on the Boardwalk... BUT IT WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! You proved that there is still plenty of life left in your rotting corpses, turning out onto the Boardwalk by the thousands! You continued to spread the word by introducing new first time shamblers who joined us at the Walk for the very first time! You screamed out in one big guttural moan that this is a landmark event that can (and will) take place ONLY IN ASBURY PARK! You kicked off everyone's favorite month full of frights and delights with the biggest bang imaginable, and most of all YOU HAD A BLAST AT THE ZOMBIE WALK! THANK YOU!!


A great big THANK YOU to our incredible family of volunteers, most of whom have helped make the Zombie Walk come to life year after year for as long as the event has been alive. They work hard all day (and night) to make sure everything is set up for all you undead to have a good time! THANK YOU also to our ridiculously talented team of dedicated makeup artists, who have also been getting bloody with us for many years now. No other Zombie Walk anywhere has such a professional crew!


THANK YOU also to the City of Asbury Park, the Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce, City Council, Police, Fire and Emergency services for being the host city to the apocalypse for nearly a decade. Every year the event goes off without a hitch thanks to everyone and their enthusiasm and support!


THANK YOU to the Asbury Park Boardwalk, Madison Marquette and Asbury Audio for always being our staging ground, we couldn't imagine a better place to spend the end of the world than shambling along the boards with you!


THANK YOU to Johnny Mac's House of Spirits, our guarantor and friend for ensuring that the tradition we started in 2008 continues to thrive and come alive in Asbury Park!


Lastly THANK YOU to all the friends & family, the vendors and bands, and the restaurants businesses and bars that have in any way contributed to one or all of the nine years worth of Zombie Walks we have held in the City by the Sea. The Asbury Park Zombie Walk would never have grown, and could never have survived if not for the support, love and encouragement of each and every one of you.


2008 seems like a lifetime ago... and now 2017 is just around the corner. I often think it unbelievable that this event which started so small has done so much, for so many people, and for so many years. It feels unreal, yet being friends with so many of you I know it is a wonderful truth. What each of you have helped us to build is a phenomenal happening that is completely and utterly unique... and irreplaceable. There are many Zombie Walks out there, but there is only one Asbury Park Zombie Walk! Thank you for making me believe year after year that there is more fun to be had designing this beautiful monster of an event for you.


The APZW turns 10 years old on October 7th, 2017. Mark your calendar now, because it is going to be an anniversary party you're not going to want to miss! We’ll see you then.

THE DEAD RETURN!
THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER GREAT YEAR!
PROFESSIONAL ZOMBIE MAKEOVERS!
Details about how to look your bloody best.

For zombies who want to look truly dead we will have a PRO ZOMBIE FX ARTIST ALLEY at the historic ASBURY PARK CONVENTION HALLwhere ghouls can get a professional makeover for a nominal fee. Since every zombie wants a different look, and some looks are more time consuming than others to apply this year there will be 3 different kinds of zombie makeovers available
