October 30, 2010- October 30, 2010
The Berwyn Development Corporation (BDC) will partner with the Roosevelt Road Business Association (RRBA) and Horrorbles to present the Inaugural Roosevelt Road Zombie Walk and Pub Crawl on Saturday, October 30 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event will feature zombie make-up, a pub crawl, food and an after-party designed to rival even your fondest memories of Thriller. Participation in the event is $10, which includes admission, make-up and food provided at the after-party. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Berwyn's acclaimed 16th Street Theater.
6943 W. Roosevelt Rd
The Zombie Walk is founded on the participation of Halloween-lovers willing to take their zombie motif to the limit. To help with this endeavor, Horrorbles will sponsor make-up and costume staging from 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. at Homescape Custom Builders & Designers, Inc., located at 6823 West Roosevelt Road, and Citizens Community Bank, located at 7025 West Roosevelt Road. Once properly attired, zombies will be led on a pub-crawl that will overtake the 12th Street Rag (6943 W. Roosevelt Rd), Friendly Tap (6733 W. Roosevelt Rd) and FitzGerald's (6615 W. Roosevelt Rd). FitzGerald's will host the catered after party with films and other un-deadly fun. In the true spirit of the un-dead, zombies will proceed between venues in silence. Once the crawl is over, zombies can resume their search for brains at their favorite Berwyn haunts until the late hours of the evening!
Paul Zimmermann, President of the BDC and RRBA, stated, "Roosevelt Road strives to be one of Chicagoland's finest entertainment destinations. There is a lot of creativity brewing between our businesses. The Zombie Walk promises to awaken our spirits for a night of revelry." John Aranza, owner of Horrorbles, continued, "I think it is wonderful that so many businesses pulled together for the 16th Street Theater. There really is positive motion happening here on Roosevelt Road. All of our event sponsors have graciously brought their expertise to the table to make this happen!"
