When There's No More Room in Hell, The Dead Shall Walk the Earth
On this day I escorted my nieces and nephews to the first annual San Antonio Zombie Walk (at least I think it was the first one, and I think I've heard that they want to do it again.) We spent a few hours working on the make-up and the costumes then headed to the meeting point which was HemisFair Park at the base of the Tower of Americas. We were worried that no one was going to be there but we started seeing zombies walking to the meeting point almost as soon as we got into downtown. I was also afraid that the kids couldn't get in, but my niece said she had okayed it and there was kids there from infants through high school.
The zombies and their victims shambled their way from the Tower of Americas to the Alamo and back. The victims were great, allowing themselves to be pulled down to the ground. The zombies would all converge on them and have a feeding frenzy. There seemed to be at least a hundred people if not more there. My nieces loved the zombie cop, I like the zombie bride and groom.
I took this pic as I was standing on the steps of the Convention Center. This particular guy was climbing the wall to get to me. I could have reached out and touched someone.
You can find some information on their MySpace page.
