Saturday, October 5:  A huge crowd of walking dead (aka “undead”) slogged around the  Asbury Park boardwalk to the delight of thousands of spectators and each other.  The parade is all about the costumes, but most participants had a common theme of half-dead creatures with bloody clothes and gaping wounds.  The roll playing usually included a menacing, stoned persona and a theme where you could be a bride, a nurse, a weird child, a butcher, a nun, etc.  Some acted out little plots such as eating a body part or having a reunion of shipwreck victims.

But that was it—milling around and doing ghoulish shtick. However, it was a unique happening, and participants and observers were having fun. Crowds cheered from the upper decks of boardwalk restaurants. Many wandered into the Casino and heard a deafening loud rock duo while some others spilled out into the Grove.

For Blogfinger, we had our own Zombie competition, trying to find a photographic sampling of particularly compelling  Zomboid characters.  Just click on any one and then follow the arrows or click on a photo.  You can enlarge a photo by clicking on the arrow in the lower right hand corner. Then click it again to go back.  There is an X at the upper left of each photo to take you back here.  If you want to comment, please use the regular Blogfinger comment button, not the one at the bottom of each image.

They didn’t have much music at the Walk, but here are two tunes to set the mood while you view the photos.

“This Joint is Jumpin'” By the cast of Ain’t Misbehavin with Nell Carter

and “Voodoo” by Don Azpiazu with the Havana Casino Orchestra
