The Midwest Haunters Convention, HighBall Halloween, & Columbus Zombie Walk are all huge events which get a lot of publicity. However, this evening I’m going to share with you a lesser known event which should be right up the alley of any self-respecting Halloween, Horror, or Zombie Fan.
On Saturday October 20th, an undead horde will converge on the Short North district for the Columbus Zombie Pub Crawl IV. This motley crew will shamble from bar to bar, having a grand time in the process. Best of all, all of this takes place a good week before most of the other Halloween type events occur.
I joined this band of the walking dead last year and had a wonderful time. Now, it may come as no surprise to you that I’m always on the lookout for an excuse to “get my spooky on”. However, there were certain things about this event which made it extra nice.
First and foremost were the people. I didn’t know a soul (and don’t even live in Columbus) but I was never without someone to talk to for the whole night. You’d be hard pressed to find a more welcoming group of dead people.
The other fun part about the evening was watching the reaction of all the “normal” people as a throng of zombies suddenly appeared in their favorite watering hole. I wish I had a dollar for every person who I heard say “Oh, I wish I’d known about this. I would have put on a costume”
Well, now YOU have heard about it. If this sounds like your cup of tea, come on out and join in the fun.
Don’t know anybody else who’s going? Like I said, that’s no problem. Just put on your “dead face” and show up. You’ll be rubbing elbows with other zombies before you finish your first drink.
