Greeting Boils and Ghouls!

That’s a wrap on our 8th seasonal NYC Zombie Crawl in Manhattan! With a main crawl every Spring in Brooklyn and every Fall in Manhattan, that brings our grand total up to 16 main events in eight years! Not to mention all the zombie beauty pageants, amusement park nights, baseball games, eating contests, strip clubs, movie premieres, book signings and other fun events we’ve hosted and co-produced over the years. And we’re not done yet!

We still have a few special events in store before the end of the year starting with the 5th annual Night of the Stripping Dead events at the Admiral Theater in Chicago October 29-31st. We’ll be coordinating makeup for the dancers and crew and a few special surprises that you’ll have to attend to see! Check out the videos from the past year’s events in the post below this one!

Special thanks to everyone who crawled with us including the bands Gash, Danse De Sade, Murder One, Girls Girls Girls and The Deafening, as well as our freakshow performers DisGraCeLand Family Freakshow/Hook Squad and our zombie burlesque from Rosalee Sweet and Stephanie Anders! And of course thanks to our sponsors Pabst Blue Ribbon, Jagermeister, Shaw Promotion and Halloween Adventure for giving us the support (and booze) to make it all happen!

Check out the photo wrap ups on VILLAGE VOICE and DRIVEN BY BOREDOM, we’ll have the official wrap video done soon too!
