Undead Invade Waukesha, WI

This Saturday, at around 5:00 pm to be exact, the undead will be invading my hometown.  Actually, it's the Waukesha Zombie Walk, an annual event that benefits the Food Pantry of Waukesha County and H.A.W.S.  Some friends and I attended last year (me as a photographer only), and, I have to admit, it's a fun experience.  All you have to do is show up in "zombie attire" and wander along a guided walk through the downtown streets doing your best Dawn of the Dead impression.

If you are too intimidated to do your own makeup for the event, you can have one of a few professional makeup artists do it for you for a small fee. 

There will also be pizza provided by Magellans and treats from Rochester Deli on-hand. All that and a free after-party for anyone who has donated $5 (or a non-perishable food item) and gets a zombie wristband.

Will I be there this year?  Maybe.  If I do, and my photos turn out well, I will post them as next week's Wordless Wednesday.  This post is my "U" assignment for Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.  To see more entries, click here.

Do you have any pre-Halloween fun events taking place in your city or town?  Feel free to say so in the comments below.  I would love to hear about them.


  1. Fascinating! I would love to photograph this event!

  2. Looks like a bunch of radical ________ (Republicans/Democrats - take your pick) standing in line to vote?

  3. This looks like so much fun!!! Love it!

  5. This would be a fun thing to see. At least one doesn't have to fear these zombies now, right? I'll be looking forward to seeing your Wordless Wednesday post that is if I have time to stop by. DH & I will be enjoying a little time together...alone! =D

    Check out my Alphabe-Thursday 'U' post Our Universe!

  6. Yikes! I'd probably wig out if I saw that coming down the road...

  7. Wow - that sounds like a fun idea for a charity. I wished I could attend (as a photographer), but now I hope that you do and we'll get to see your photos next week!

    Thank you for visiting my Alphabe- Thursday: Underwater photos @ ImagesByCW

  8. That looks like SO much fun! You should definitely do it this year!

  9. I hate dressing up, myself, but get such a kick out of the people who go to great lengths to costume up this time of year! Love it!!

  10. Oooh! This looks crazy fun and scary!

    I'd like to see them in the daytime.

    At night it would scare me too much - ha!

    This was fUn!


  11. Around 150 games in total, but that's relatively small compared to our users. This way you are not disappointed when you get residence, and you won't have to make a excursion back to the shop.

    It's fast to build and play and will challenge your memory.

  12. Some professional lines include Joico Haircare and
    Strivectin. Again, be careful when using the vinegar as some
    people may have an unpleasant reaction to the acid in the vinegar.
    It is an organ of elimination which proceeds too many of
    the waste-products which have been produced as
    a result of bodily processes in sweat through the pores.
