Lincoln Zombie Walk

Man dressed as a zombieLincoln Zombie Walk

"The Lincoln Zombie Walk began as a simple flash-mob event in which participants dressed up as zombies and walked the streets for the enjoyment of bystanders' reactions. It was an underground event, only advertised through MySpace and Facebook, yet our attendance numbers continued to double each season. It is now in its 5th season. Last year we had over 2000 participants, thanks in large part to our partnership with Pershing Center. This partnership has allowed the Lincoln Zombie Walk to become the Lincoln ZombieFest, a city-wide, 2 day festival hosting vendors, a street party, workshops and, of course, the Lincoln Zombie Walk. With your help we will continue to see the Lincoln Zombie Walk grow."
