6th Annual Portland Zombie Walk & Thrill the World Portland 10/23
It’s time, O Great Zombie Horde of Portlandia! The 6th Annual Portland Zombie Walk and the 4th Annual Thrill the World Portland is this Saturday, October 23, at Pioneer Courthouse Square at 701 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland, Oregon. Get your most horrifying zombie garb and head downtown to join in the gory fun!
Here’s the schedule:
3:30 p.m.: Show up, mingle with your fellow zombies, pose for photos–the living love taking pictures of zombies, as much as the unliving love eating brains. One request: There will be Portland Zombie Walk volunteers keeping an area clear for the dancers. Please be respectful, and move if asked!
4 p.m.: Thrill the World Portland performs the “Thriller” dance simultaneously with other Thrill the World groups around . . . well, the world (in case that wasn’t obvious).
After the Thriller Dance: THE ZOMBIE WALK BEGINS!!! Immediately following Thrill the World Portland’s performance, the Great Zombie Horde of Portlandia will take to the streets, shambling, shuffling, groaning, and wailing. Check out the Portland Zombie Walk Facebook event page here!
Both the PZW organizers and volunteers, and the Thrill the World Portland organizers ask that you read and follow the general rules of the Zombie Walk. In short, it boils down to be nice to people and don’t destroy things.
