DeKalb Holds Zombie Walk

Hopefully it will be as socially progressive and supportive of the Differently Animated as possible too:

DeKALB – Don’t be surprised to see a few hundred decomposing zombies staggering around Northern Illinois University this weekend.

The DeKalb Zombie Walk 2011 Facebook page has garnered 600 responses from people saying they plan to participate in the march through town.

Meghan Barnett, an NIU sophomore who’s one of the organizers, said she got the idea after she was unable to attend a similar event in her hometown of Bloomington last October. She was disappointed she couldn’t be there, so she decided to organize an event in DeKalb.

“We’ll be walking, or I guess I should say shambling, around,” she said. “It’s more for the onlookers to see all these undead people walking around.”

Yes! It really *is* important that the mainstream population see the Undead peacefully walking through their communities. That’s an excellent approach to outreach right there.

The Walk starts in a couple of hours, so if you’re in DeKalb, you should seriously consider attending. Details are at the link above.
