Pittsburgh Zombiefest 2011
Zombie Fest founder Mark Menold has been organizing charity zombie walks all around the world as part of World Zombie Day. Pittsburgh Zombie Fest, which is now in its fifth year, is the headquarters for the global charity event and has earned Pittsburgh the Guinness Book World Record for “Largest Gathering of Zombies”.
By virtue of the success of the movies from Pittsburgh pioneer filmaker George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow), and our now world famous zombie walks, Pittsburgh has become what Mr. Menold refers to as “The Zombie Capital of the World”. Furthermore, Zombie Fest is a socially conscious event, collecting food donations for those less fortunate and cash donations for Komen for the Cure. It provides a fun and harmless way to accomplish that charitable mission.
