The undead of Marietta, Georgia are coming back to help our community of the living on October 18, 2014and for the fourth year the zombies will bring donations to support MUST Ministries. In 2011 we started with over 300 undead and the horde has continued to grow to last year close to 800 strong filling 15 barrels of food and donating almost $2000 to help the living in need.
Carnival of Doom is once again sponsoring the 4th Annual Marietta Zombie Walk benefiting those in need within our local community. All proceeds and collected food from the Marietta Zombie Walk goes directly to MUST Ministries in their mission to help local humans in need. This year, we are truly excited to be part of the Marietta Harvest Square Arts & Crafts Festival and some fun post-walk activities are in the plans for Glover Park to entertain the undead even more.
What’s a Zombie Walk? A Zombie Walk is an organized (as organized as zombies can be) public gathering of people dressed in zombie costumes. The walks take place in an urban center as the participants make their way around city streets and through public spaces in an orderly fashion. In Marietta, the undead will again roam the streets around Marietta Square in a not-so-brisk 0.8 mile stumble. This is an undead family event.
There’s a little undead in all of us, so bring out your best zombie look and food donations (human cash & credit card donations work) and join the local undead in Marietta Square. Victims Spectators are welcome to come play with us while helping the local food pantry (zombies do not need food for humans, right?) The Infestation (Gathering) starts at 5pm in Glover Park after the Festival. The Feeding (Walk) starts promptly at6pm. Makeup artists will be on hand during the festival to help bring out the undead for a monetary donation or arrive already in character using your own creativity.
