2012 Dublin Zombie Walk
* Saturday, 4 August 2012 * St. Stephen’s Green to Temple Bar * 2 pm – 4 pm * Dublin, Ireland * http://www.dublinzombiewalk.com/ *
The living dead rose to masses ranging from 4,000 to quoted 10,000 undead splattering blood, guts, and moaning for brains as they walked a long route taking over the streets of Dublin’s historic city centre. These uncanny zombies were oozing with delight as they stopped at several points as a large mass dance party to Thriller and other tunes. Tumbling out of St. Stephen’s Green park, the zombies walked around the park, down Dawson street, down towards O’Connoll street, and wrapping up in Temple Bar. The city was in full support and corralled the zombies assisted by the Zombie Tactic Squad who made sure none of the zombies wandered off the streets onto the sidewalks. Fun was had for all. Unlike many other zombie crawls which are atypical flash mobs, this one with its thousands was done as a fundraiser to raise Euros for charities such as the Irish Cancer Society and Barnardos. As a former zombie crawl organizer from the States, i was highly impressed by its organization and success.
