The event will feature zombie make-up, a pub crawl and feeding frenzy designed to rival even your fondest memories of Thriller. Participation in the event is $20 early bird until Weds, Oct 26 at 5PM or $25 at the door. Wristbands include admission, exclusive drink specials for the zombified, make-up (if needed) and free eats provided at the conclusion of the crawl. The first 100 to purchase tickets will receive a FREE special edition commemorative t-shirt.
Horrorbles, Berwyn's renowned horror and sci-fi collectibles store, will sponsor make-up and costume staging from 5:30PM – 7:00PM at Culver's. Once properly attired, the undead can pick-up their wristbands at Commodore Barry American Legion Post and start the crawl. The road will be peppered with hearses from the Hard Core Hearse Club. 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 the Veltway Music Collective instrument drive. Food will be donated by Autre Monde Café & Spirits, Big Guys Sausage Stand, Buona Restaurant, Capri Ristorante, Culver's, Di Nico's Pizza & Gelato, Nonna D's, Turano's Mamma Susi Bakeshop, Vesecky's Bakery and Wing Boss.
