A history of the zombie outbreak:

WE’VE COME A LONG WAY

from the basement of the VFW building, where we held the first ever Asbury Park Zombie Walk on the First Saturday of October in 2008. Now, we’re busy planning the TENTH ANNUAL ASBURY PARK ZOMBIE WALK! Still held on the First Saturday of October all these years later - but with more activities, more makeup artists, and (we hope) more undead walking the Boardwalk and the City than ever before!


Get your best burial clothes ready and join us as we celebrate a decade of shambling together in the City by the Sea!


- The Asbury Park Zombie Walk Team



TEN YEARS LATER
ZOMBIES TO CONVERGE ON ASBURY PARK FOR MILESTONE EVENT
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
