Madison is the next city to face the shambling undead hordes.
At 2pm on Saturday, October 22, zombie fans will assemble in full costume to kick off Zombie Lurch 2005. Join us! We'll meet on the Capitol steps (Carroll/Mifflin side), shamble down State Street with stops for tasty brains and beverages, and end at the Union Terrace for even more beverages.
To add a particularly Madisonian touch, it's not just a Zombie Walk but a Zombie Protest. Fight for zombie rights by bringing a protest sign, sandwich board, or customized t-shirt. With slogans like Let Zombies Walk!, The undead are people too! Open your heart and mind to zombies, or even an eloquent ARGH, we'll raise public consciousness for the plight of our cannibalistic brothers and sisters. What do we want? BRAINS! When do we want it? BRAINS!
Please supply your own zombie makeup and clothing. But zombies are 80% attitude, so join in no matter what state of decomposition you're in.
Aim questions, ideas, or intent to participate at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you at Zombie Lurch!
