Zombie Walk back from the dead in NJ


New Jersey's famed Asbury Park Zombie walk was thought dead at the Jersey Shore. Horror fans know zombies are hard to kill, and so is the Zombie Walk. There is a new King of the Zombies in New Jersey and his name is Johnny McGillion, owner of "Johnny Mac's Bar".

According the Asbury Park Sun , McGillion purchased the rights to the event from the previous organizer who made the announcement about the walk's demise.  There were talks of having it moved to other towns in the Garden State but McGillion wouldn't have it.
“A lot of communities would want the Zombie Walk in their town but we are looking to prevent that,” the Asbury Park Johnny Mac’s bar owner said. “We’re looking forward to taking it over and getting involved. It’s a tremendous asset to the City of Asbury Park.”
This is good news for NJ horror fans. Most likely there will be a big turnout of about 5000 people and plenty of professional level make-up effects. It really has become an NJ tradition and to have it back from the dead is truly poetic for zombie fans. The walk is scheduled for October 10, 2015 festivities at noon and walk at 4pm.
