For the past five years, Asbury Park has been the home to an annual gathering of the undead. In 2010, New Jersey's Zombie Walk had set a record for having the highest participation of people in costume in the world, according to the Guinness World Records. This year, we decided to document the event. Children, adults, and pets dressed the part with full makeup, which they had the option of having professionals do on site. The boardwalk was full of individuals in character, which of course included groans and calls for braaaains. The Walk started with announcements from the event's creator, Jason Meehan, and a rehearsed dance routine to the tune of Thriller. Starting at the Convention Center, the herds of the infected made their way towards the Downtown area of Asbury Park. What a great way to start October.
