Red, White, and Dead Zombie Movie Event
Saturday, July 3, 2010 from 12:00 PM to 12:00 AM (PDT)
With summer just around the corner, Seattle welcomes the return of warm summer nights, family vacations, the afternoon barbeque and Zombies? Yes, thousands of Zombies are planning their return to Fremont this Fourth of July weekend to walk and dance their way back into the history books for a bloody good time and cause.
The Fremont Outdoor Movies is counting on all of Seattle to come out and represent their city to return the Guinness World Record back to its rightful owner and crown Seattle the “Zombie Capital of the World” once and for all in the Dead Center of the Universe – Fremont.
The Zombie walk world record is 4,026 and currently held by the Big Chill Music Festival in the England, which narrowly edged out Seattle’s 3,894 last August.
Event Producer, Ryan Reiter believes it will take 10,000 zombies to hold onto it for a while, but is confident Seattle can do it. Eric Pope and the Zombie walk experts from The Seattle Zombie Walk organization are back to help unite and lead the official Zombie Walk this July and are excited about the possibilities.
ZomBcon arose from the success of last summer’s event spectacle, The Red, White, and Dead Zombie Walk on the Fourth of July weekend in Seattle at which 6,000 people in full zombie costumes mobbed the streets and subsequently won a Guinness World Record in front of thousands of fans at the Comic Con Convention in San Diego.
