Greetings from Asbury Park!
ASBURY PARK, NJ - The New Jersey Zombie Walk is kicking off the summer season with a BRAND NEW event!
In celebration of our 2010 Guinness Record achievement as the “Largest Gathering of Zombies in the World” we will be hosting our first ever “Zombie Beach Party” in Asbury Park! On Saturday, May 28th zombies will once again converge on the Asbury Boardwalk as we kickoff the summer beach season and Memorial Day weekend.
This retro themed event will bring beach goers and zombie lovers back in time by invoking the spirit of the classic beach party films of the 1960’s. Beach activities will include games like brain volleyball, legless limbo, intestine-twister, zombie hula contests and more!
The event will also feature an amusement midway - a throwback to Palace Amusements and the games and boardwalk attractions that are part of Asbury Park’s history. Patrons can play traditional carnival games with an undead twist including a zombie dunk tank, a kissing (biting) booth, brain dart toss, and “Aim for the Head.” Players will have a chance to win an assortment of festive zombified prizes.
Where and When is the Zombie Beach Party?
Boardwalk & beach activities begin Saturday, May 28th at noon on Asbury Park boardwalk between 1st and 2nd Ave. (directly in front of The Stone Pony).Wristbands will be available for $10, and will include a beach badge for the day, discounts on all midway games, and special savings at restaurants, bars and food stands down the full length of the boardwalk and throughout the entire city.
