Yes you read right! Tomorrow at midnight The Oregon District will be swarming with zombies. Don’t be frightened it’s for a good cause. The Dayton Zombie Walk Zombies should gather at the parking lot by Omega Music on East Fifth Street.
If you need help with your makeup, a pre-party at Vex on at 4th and St. Clair hosted by Foy’s will be held for dead things to prepare themselves to crawl The Oregon. For Zombies who want to dance the night away there is also a after party. See flyer. Makeup artists and other experts will be onsite from 7:30 to 10:30. If your skilled enough to do your own makeup, stop by Foy’s for the best supplies. It’s where I go .. to get my Zombie Face on. Yes, that’s me.
Zombies apparently are also philanthropists, well tomorrow they are. A canned and nonperishable food drive for the Dayton Food Bank will also be part of the night’s festivities so if you’re walking you can also bring your donations to the post-walk party at Vex. If you’re a Zombie, you have no use for canned goods anyway so you might as well hand them over. Stick to flesh, there are people in need.
In 2009, the Zombie Walk in Dayton was rather a small affair with only about 30 Zombies gathering. Since, the event has grown dramatically and 500 are expected to walk here in Dayton. How cool is Dayton? Young Professional friendly and Zombie friendly. It doesn’t get much better than that.
So, come out and be free with your undead self. If you’re relatively scared of dead things, consider yourself warned because if you’re partying in The Oregon tomorrow night you’ll have company. More information can be found http://www.daytonzombiewalk.com
