Okay Zombies and Zombie wanna-be's. Now's your time to see and be seen!
This is a totally fun event for people of all ages. You don't need to dress up as "The Undead", but you can easily pick up all things Undead at the vendors booths -- like fake blood, etc. Or, for a $5 donation you can have a make-up artist give you a "Zombie" makeover.
Lots of food trucks will be there and several bars and restaurants downtown are offering discounts to those who add a dash of "Undead" to their normal attire. The Zombie Crawl is fun, and you simply cannot find people/zombie watching better than this in the South Bay!
The movie Zombie Land is part of San Jose's free outdoor Starlight movie series and will begin at 9:00. This particular Meet Up does NOT include the movie, but you can always stay and watch it if you like.
We will meet at Parque de los Pobladores, South First and William Streets at 6:00. I may get there earlier to get my "makeover". My cell is[masked] in case anyone else gets there early,too. Once we have seen enough Zombies to drive us to drink we will "crawl" to various establishment for wine or frosty adult zombie beverages.
Easy access to the light rail and several parking garages nearby.
