From Kitty Zombie:
Greetings all! Well, it’s that time of year again, and luckily it’s cold enough to do it this year! We may take a stroll to the Christmas Market for a pic in front of the giant tree again this year.
Remember, please keep it low on the blood. Blood on the ice may LOOK cool, but we want to keep the city happy. So far, they like us Zombies during the Holidays better than the drunk, fighting Santas that come every year. LOL!
We are here to have fun and celebrate two awesome things, Zombies and Xmas!
Just a note, this is the Ice Rink under the Bean.
Here is more info on the Rink Itself, including skate rental fees: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/ice_skating_at_themccormicktribuneicerink.html
We will start around 2:30pm on Sunday, and skate for a few hours. Say, untill 5:30ish. Then head over to the Christmas Market for pics, food, etc etc.

We have a few photos from Zombies On Ice 2 on December 19th. Check’em out HERE.
“Zombies on Ice ’09 was a bit different from the first one last year. It was a tad colder, a bit gloomier, and far fewer zombies attended – only 40 or so came out this year for the now-annual skating event that started at 2:30pm on Saturday. But one thing it DID have over last year: A more intimate feel.
What do I mean by that? Well, everyone was able to interact with everyone else. The public did not feel so over whelmed, interacted more with us and took more pictures with us (or perhaps that was because of the giant Santa sack filled with candy!).
One of the security staff informed us that we were (yet again) better-behaved than the yearly Santa mob that come around, for which Kitty was thanked repeatedly. Unofficially of course.
Those that came, both in and out of make-up, gathered around 5:00pm for a 6 block jaunt to the Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza.
More group pictures. More surprised reactions, laughs and high fives from young and old alike.
Some people seemed a tad disappointed in the numbers, but Kitty couldn’t have been happier.
It may not have been as grandiose as last years event but it sure did feel like a Christmas family outing.
Thank you to all who attended, we missed those that could not, and we shall see you in 2010!
From Kitty Zombie:
Alrighty folks! It’s a late start, but we are still going to be hitting the ice this year from 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm on December 19th, McCormick Tribune Plaza & Ice Rink Millennium Park
We got GREAT reviews last year, people said we were better behaved than the Santas that come around. AWESOME! So lets keep it up! No dripping gore or blood please, and be friendly. This is a celebration of holidays and weirdness, so lets have fun with it!
There is no Bears game that day, so parking shouldn’t be all that bad. Since Zombies on Ice is on a Saturday this year, for anyone that would like to hit the Christkindlmarket afterward, we may shamble on over for some yummy warm drinks.
And for those of you over 21, we may just end up hitting a bar or two that evening.
So dress festive, bring some skates so you don’t have to rent them, and lets have some silly fun!

ZOMBIES ON ICE 1, 2008
At least 187 zombies turned out at the McCormick Tribune Plaza & Ice Rink Millennium Park on Sunday, December 14, 2008 to join Kitty Zombie for the first ever Chicago Zombies On Ice.
The skating zombies were met by a surprising amount of press coverage (read the Chicago Sun-Times Article), with articles that ran in the local newspapers, radio and TV, not to mention tons of photos and video for the internet.
Everybody had a great time and, more importantly, all the zombies behaved themselves, creating further goodwill in Chicago for zombie flash mobs (unlike those unruly drunk Santas that hit the ice rink the night before!)

Kitty reports that the first ever Plague Day at the Bristol County Renaissance Faire was a smash success, with around 150 zombies invading the Faire and bringing a touch of ghoulish mayhem to the merriment.

BRAVE KNIGHTS, FAIR MAIDENS, BAWDY WENCHES AND HUNGRY CORPSES!
Chicago’s favorite zombie Kitty invites you to travel back to Ye Good Olde Days at the Bristol Renaissance Faire for PLAGUE DAY this August 15th. What is Plague Day? ZOMBIES AT THE FAIRE! Bristol has opened its oaken gates to Chicago/Milwaukee’s zombie citizens, offering a VERY special zombies-only discount, and sectioning off the Cotwolds Commons area exclusively for the undead! There’ll be prizes, contests, raffles, activities and more! Also known as The Glade, the Commons will be appropriately decorated with a medieval (med-evil?) zombie theme to give it that freshly-dug-grave feeling. So come out to the Faire, grab a pint, eat a wench and enjoy the simple undead pleasures of a bygone age!
Although it should go without saying, we want to see period costume zombies – no Armani Zombies!
