For the past two years I've run the Charlotte Zombie Walk and have had great success with it. In addition to having lots of folks showing up dressed like the undead, I invite all the local haunts and tell them to bring their actors and lots of promotional materials. It makes for some great networking and the haunts get to pass out materials to anyone else participating and/or the victims we run into.
Last year we sponsored a blood drive and plan to add a food drive this year (in accordance with World Zombie Day on October 11 2009)
Anyone else organize/participate/enjoy zombie walks? Any good stories? I have found it surprisingly easy to put together.
