Annual Santa Monica Zombie Crawl Overview
The Annual Santa Monica Zombie Crawl takes participating zombies for a tour of Santa Monica Pier and the Third Street Promenade, starting at Rusty's Surf Shack and moving on to several nearby bars and pubs. The venues offer something for everyone, from cozy and laid-back to slick and upbeat. The Halloween ambiance tends to be mixed with a free-wheeling party vibe.
Pub Crawlers get wristbands entitling them to drink special at participating locations. The discount menus include beer, wine, and well drinks, but with each bar offering such its own indigenous options, it is tempting to forgo discounts and go off-menu.
Makeup experts are on site at Rusty's Surf Shack to transform the living into the living dead. The "rules" for the event (there is no enforcement) indicate that participants must wear costumes, walk with arms extended, drag a leg, and moan or growl.
Zombies are welcome to proceed at their own pace, and discounts at all locations are good throughout the evening. However, the Santa Monica Zombie Crawl offers a recommended schedule, to help insure that undead hordes will descend in mass at each stop.
The Annual Santa Monica Zombie Crawl Location & Parking Info
The address for the Santa Monica Pier is 200 Santa Monica Pier Santa Monica, CA . The official website is santamonicapier.org. The pier's parking lot is likely to be crowded, so plan to park at the mall on Colorado Avenue or in one of the parking structures on Broadway. These lots will be closer to the pubs, making your walk back to the car shorter.
Note: This event does not have its own website, but it show up in the calendar of events for Rusty's Surf Ranch.
