Hundreds of Zombies to Invade the Santa Monica Streets on Thursday, Oct. 31

(SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 10, 2013) – The first annual Santa Monica Zombie Crawl will bring out hundreds in their best zombie garb for a chilling bar crawl in the heart of Santa Monica.

Participants must follow specific Zombie Crawl Rules to get through the streets. First, they must keep an authentic zombie appearance, keep arms extended outward, drag a limb, and finally, they must deliver vicious snarls and moans without talking.

Makeup artists will be on-site at the starting location at Rusty’s Surf Ranch on the Pier, to assist with the zombie-fying process, and an official zombie group photo will be staged under the Pier sign at 8 p.m. to magnify the zombie takeover.
