The Undead Helping The Living
Marietta, Georgia, August 7, 2013: We had hoped all was well…apparently, we were dead wrong. The undead of Marietta, Georgia are coming back again to help our community of the living on October 19, 2013 and for the third year the zombies will bring donations to support MUST Ministries. Over 400 undead put aside their hunger for brains in 2011 filling 6 barrels with food for humans and making substantial monetary donations to MUST Ministries. In 2012, the horde swelled to over 600 undead filling 14 barrels with human food and contributing over $1000 to help the local living in need. This year?
Carnival Of Doom is once again sponsoring the 3rd 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 “drive-in” double-feature in Glover Park of Attack Of The Monsters & Night Of The Living Dead.
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 (we hope these are only 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 human food food for humans, right?) The Infestation (Gathering) starts at 5pm in Glover Park after the Festival. The Feeding (Walk) starts promptly at 6pm. 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.
