The Bloomington Normal Zombie Walk is in it's 10th year and will be benefiting Children's Home & Aid in 2019
Rules and information for all Bloomington/Normal Zombie Walks.
This walk is something that we come together as a group to form. For the safety for all involved PLEASE FOLLOW ALL THE FOLLOWING RULES.
Anyone not following rules may be subject to fines, lawsuits, and you could just be arrested. (That doesn’t sound fun) So on with the rules.
1. Dress like a zombie and try never to break character!
2. All minors are more then welcome (the young ones can be the creepiest) but should be accompanied by an adult!
3. Use the “haunted house” rule in that you are not to touch anyone. Do not attempt to scare anyone who is not a willing participant. If anyone is freaking out or scared, turn and shamble, limp, or stumble in the opposite direction. Avoid confrontations
4. Stay on the sidewalk unless crossing the street. When crossing, it’s OK to “break character” and cross quickly. Think fast “New Dawn of the Dead” zombies verses the slower “Old Dawn of the Dead” zombies when crossing the street. Blocking traffic is a crime and anyone doing so could be arrested. We have utilized "zombie hunters" as a sort of crowd control, they are in no way the the leaders of the zombies but have been a great help keeping order at cross walks.
5. No alcohol or drugs.
6. No weapons.
7. Do not get blood on ANYTHING. Don’t even drip it on a sidewalk. (just in case) You may however have as much on you as you want!!!! (getting blood on things could be seen as vandalism)
8. No littering, destruction of property, or any other illegal activity. Do not bang on store windows, most of the time when this is done you get blood on the window (refer back to rule # 7) and stay away from automobiles.
9. Obey posted parking rules at the parks and uptown normal.
10. Have fun!
Now I understand that some of the rules may be a bummer, but this is something we may want to do each year and we want to leave a positive impression so that we can do it again next year. Remember, the media may be watching us and this event could get regional news coverage. Let’s put on a good show!
