This is always the busiest time of year around PU HQ what with the daily human sacrifices and what not, but we’re never too dig up news on the next big event here in the 'burg - The 2010 Pittsburgh Zombie Fest & Walk!
2009 Zombie Walk at Monroeville Mall with the Cast of It's Alive!
Here in the Steel City, we are somewhat ahead of the curve when it comes to all things zombie - hell, our native son George Romero invented the genre right here in our own backyards dammit!...and every year we show our pride at the annual Zombie Fest & Walk, traditionally held where it all began, Monroeville Mall (set the wayback machine to 1978 and check out Monroeville Mall back in the disco era when Dawn of the Dead was filmed by the godfather of zombies, Pittsburgh's own George Romero).
But, as stated earlier, tis the season of change and there has been a slight change to the location for this years event. The newly renovated Market Square, located right next to the big shiny buildings in PPG Place, will be this year's proving ground for the festivities. Why you ask? Simply put by the festivities creator, Pittsburgh's own Mark Menold (aka, Dr. McSquared, host of Pittsburgh's It's Alive Show!), "I guess it got too big for them". Yes, good reader, our ranks are growing... (Check out the full interview with Mr. Menold here at TribLive).
