Every Zombie Decays Eventually

ZombieWalkOKC.com is on ice until further notice. Things might change when parade time rolls around, but we'll have to see.

Thank you to everyone who has joined us over the years. It's been fun.

LATEST NEWS & UPDATES:

It's Been Fun, Kiddos, But I'm Out

Thank you to everyone who has joined us over the last few years! There have been so many fantastic ghouls walking the streets of Oklahoma City.

Maybe things will change when parade time rolls around, but at this time, I've just had enough and it's time to concentrate on other things in my life.

If anyone wants any of the shirts and trinkets that are left, contact me through http://crazedlemming.com or I'll have them for sale cheap at the Underground Monster Carnival (State Fairgrounds March 2, 2013)

Things Learned:

  • Some people can't tell the difference between spilled chocolate sauce and a murder scene.
  • I hate the phrase, "That's awesome! Let me know how it turns out."
  • Facebook event math: Take the total number of Maybes and Goings, divide by 3, and you probably have about the number that will actually show up.
  • Everyone should buy 200lb of candy at least once in their life. It's an amazing feeling.
  • In a metro area of some 6000+ sq. miles with relatively mild traffic, people grumble if they have to travel more than 10 miles to get somewhere

Zombies Take the Lead!

We will be at the front of the parade this year, so we need everyone we can get!

Rules Reminder:
1. Must be 18+
2. No weapons
3. No touching the spectators
4. No throwing anything at the spectators
5. Don't be a jerk

5th Annual Gazette's Halloween Parade

Date and Time: 
Sat, 10/29/2011 - 5:00pm

Downtown Oklahoma City

Details: 

IT'S PARADE TIME AGAIN!

The annual Halloween Parade is turning 5! Zombie Walk OKC has been there from the beginning, and WE'RE GOING BIG THIS YEAR! We need all available zombies to come join our entry to make this the largest, scariest undead swarm to ever lurch through Oklahoma's streets.

It is a free event! Grab your friends, throw on some gore and makeup, and come join the fun.

facebook RSVP page:
https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=145555932201164

(RSVP isn't necessary but helps us have a better estimate of how many people to expect.)

RULES  *IMPORTANT*

The usual rules apply...."You may be dead, but don't be a jerk." Plus there are some parade specific ones:

1. You MUST be 18+ to walk in the parade. (Minors are encouraged to go be spectators)
2. No weapons or simulated weapons.
3. No throwing items to the crowd. (We will have a group of volunteers HANDING candy to the kids though)

ABOUT THE PARADE

The Gazette's Annual Halloween Parade normally features close to 100 entries and boasts crowds of 50000+ spectators. It's one of the most exciting celebrations of art and creativity in the region.

This will be the parade's 5th year. Zombie Walk OKC has had an entry in it every year, and continues to grow each time. Last year, we had about 200 zombies and won our second trophy. This year we're shooting for an even larger turn out.

Official gazette parade website: http://okgazetteparade.com/ghouls/home.html

NEW FOR THIS YEAR

1. The route has changed...sort of...It's the same route as the previous few years, but going the other direction.

2. We'll have a shiny new 9ft wide banner at the front of our group with a 3ft brain on the back for us to follow.

3. There isn't a flaming lips skeleton army this year, which leads to...

4. We've teamed up with TheSpyFM.com (this year's big headlining entry) to work towards forming a mega swarm of zombies in the grand finale position formerly held by the skeletons.

LOCATION

We'll be meeting somewhere around the field between NW 3rd St and NW 4th St east of EK Gaylord Blvd.
