Zombie Fest 2008

This year's second Zombie Fest at the Monroeville Mall - the same Mall that was used for the original "Dawn of the Dead"- was a complete success and total blast! Sunday's Zombie Walk had around 1,350 Zombies invade the Mall. We more than beat any of the competing Cities from around the globe.
That's me in the circle awaiting for the official photo and tally to be taken by the event's sponsor's, "The It's Alive Show" for the Guinness Book of World Records.

This is Me with the host of "The It's Alive Show", Professor M.C. Square. He came up with the idea for Zombie Walk in 2006 for fans of the show and due to the success of this, turned it into an annual event and most important, collecting tons of food for The Pittsburgh Food Bank.

With me is the star of "Dawn of the Dead" Ken Foree. A really Great Guy. He was very gracious with his time and hosted many of the weekends special events.
You never hear of Tom Cruise doing that! I liked how he kept saying that he is a "Working Actor" and not a "Star". A lot of these "Hollywood big-shots" should take their cues from people like Ken.
The Fest was a great time and if your are in the Pittsburgh area around Halloween next year, you should all attend. Pittsburgh is the Zombie Capital of the World!
