Long Beach Zombie Walk

Long Beach Zombie Walk Logo

Infamous Long Beach Zombie Walk
Fri., Sat., and Sun. @7PM

The zombie walk is an organized gathering of zombies who make their way into the streets of Long Beach by Shoreline Village and around The Pike through the Harbor (in a roundtrip 35-45 minute walk) in an orderly fashion. During the walk, participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior, which may include grunting, groaning or slurred, moaning calls for “brains.” Pose for pictures. Dance like Michael Jackson in the “Thriller” music video. Act out a scene from The Walking Dead. Look menacing. Growl a lot and have fun doing so.
