Roosevelt Road Business Association (RRBA) partners with Horrorbles to present the 4th annual Roosevelt Road Zombie Walk and Pub Crawl beginning at 6:45 pm. The event will feature zombie make-up, a pub crawl, food and an after-party designed to rival even your fondest memories of “Thriller.” Participation in the event is $20, which includes admission, make-up and food provided at the after-party. Proceeds from the event benefit The Berwyn Historical Society.

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, Horrorbles sponsors make-up and costume staging from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at venues to be announced on Roosevelt Road. Once properly attired, zombies will be led on a pub-crawl that will overtake local bars along the road including The Wire and FitzGerald’s. FitzGerald’s will host the catered after party with un-deadly fun. In the true spirit of the un-dead, zombies will proceed between venues in silence. Once the crawl is over, zombies can resume their search for brains at their favorite Berwyn haunts until the late hours of the evening!
