Chicago Zombie March
The Sixth Annual Chicago Zombie March has been set for June 22, 2013! The rules are very simple: Dress and be made up as a zombie and just shamble and act like one. Zombies will meet at Millennium Park and proceed from there. The last few years they have walked to the museum campus, Daley Plaza, back to Millennium Park, to Buckingham Fountain and if there still any able-bodied zombies left, they’lll head over to the ABC7 news station for the 5:00 pm show. If folks want their makeup done, Colleen Jones and David Lasley are available to take appointments. If you don’t have the time to make an appointment, dont worry! They’ll have a crack team of zombie makeup artists to zombify you up! More details will come as the march gets closer and closer.
If you or someone you know is interested in doing zombie makeup, contact Colleen Jones or David Lasley for more info ( make sure you include a link to some pics).
More information and details HERE.
Zombies gather to march down the streets of Chicago.
Since I got to spend the morning answering angry emails sent to ChicagoZombie.com about the march, a couple of reminders for next year:
- Scaring small children (on purpose)? Not cool. The streets of Chicago aren’t a haunted house. A street full of unexpected zombies is scary enough to a kid.
- Being a loud, foul-mouthed jackass? Not cool. Screaming curses at onlookers, knocking things over, leaving a mess for others to clean up – that’s juvenile behavior unbecoming of a Chicago zombie.
I know I’m only talking to a very small percentage who will likely blow this off, but just remember – as soon as the City of Chicago decides that we’re more trouble than they want to put up with, they *will* shut us down.
Behave yourselves, zombies.
Its that time of year again kiddies!
