Zombie Walk 2011

In photography by webmeister Bud

Yet again, the city hosted the weird and wonderful zombie walk, where huge amounts of zombies walk, shuffle, limp and drag themselves through downtown streets, ending with a mass groaning at the Legislature.

I prefer to keep the photos on this gallery to a certain standard of . . . safety.

I’m not sure if that’s the exact word I’m going for, but I’m getting at the fact that the photos showcased here are among the more tame of what I captured that day.

I shot a full collection of sometimes gory, sometimes amusing, sometimes downright terrifying zombies this weekend, but have housed them elsewhere.

With that warning in mind, see the full set here.

And . . . “GRAAAAAH!”

This was the scene just before the, um . . . gaggle? Bevy? Horde? Anyways, just before the zombies left Spirit Square (the square formerly known as Centennial).

Many of the zombies were applying last-minute touch-ups, and that included excess blood to drop along the way.

I’d love to have hung around the square to get the reactions of any passers-by after all the zombies left.

The hilarious and harmless aftermath of a ridiculously unique tradition.
