Oct 21-23: Prepare yourself for the zombie apocalypse as Asbury Park is overrun by the undead during the fourth annual New Jersey Zombie Walk. Last year’s walk set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of Zombies, as 4,092 participants lurched from Convention Hall toward the streets of Asbury Park. This year’s walk hopes to attract even more. It boasts zombie-themed events all three days, including live music, costume pageants, a “Thriller” group dance and Jell-O brain-eating contests. This year, the walk also presents the new Undead Festival, a horror convention featuring costuming and makeup supplies, local artists, filmmakers and musicians and special guests such as actors from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Before the walk, professional makeup artists will be on hand to give demos and assist with zombie effects for a small fee. Throughout the weekend, popular Asbury Park restaurants and shops will offer Zombie-themed menus and discounts. This year, the walk has again partnered with the Central Jersey Blood Center of Shrewsbury, with a mobile blood bank set up for donations. Walk: Sat, 5 pm; free. Festival: Fri, 4–10 pm; Sat, 10 am–6 pm; Sun, 11 am–5 pm; $10–$15/day; $20–$30/3-day pass. 1300 Ocean Ave, Asbury Park (908-656-0378; njzombiewalk.com).
