What: A Zombie Season would not be complete without the Big Zombie Walk, over the years we have gathered by the hundreds, pretending to be rotting zombies and having a zombie good time. The Seattle Center and ZomBcon will be filled zombies shuffling around along with thousands of fans and dozens of celebrities. What a way to set the theme of the weekend! At the end of the walk we will surround the SIFF to honor George Romereo for his red carpet tribute.

Why: The man, the chin, the legend… ‘Bruce F%#*ing Campbell is here in Seattle, the Zombie Capitol of the World to celebrate 2010 Halloween with us.
ZomBcon plays host to specialty exhibitors, interactive fan workshops, video game tournaments, a Zombie Film Festival, unique round-table discussions, and Seattle’s premier Halloween party ticket this year; The Prom Night of the Living Dead. We’re hosting celebrity guests including George Romero, Bruce Campbell, Max Brooks and Malcolm McDowell, and are rolling out the welcome mat for AMC’s The Walking Dead Premier, The Dell Streak Tour and Hello’s Kitty’s 50th anniversary party.
Would there be any interest in announcing volunteer opportunities to your audience? We have about 90 right now and would really like to add at least 50 more.
The thing I love the most about about ZomBcon, is that it is on the best weekend for costume parties. Spend your day getting your zombie fix and at night celebrate in one of many parties out there. If you find me passed out in a pile of red bull cans its because I tried to hit every event.

This hilarious live stage show combines all the elements of the cult classic horror films Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell jokes… and all is set to music. Adult language, themes, graphic comedic scenes with lots and lots and lots of blood. Recommended for ages 16 and older..
