And so the dead walked again on Sunday 10.10.10 for the first time Zombiefest took place at Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh (previously in Monroeville. I took some of my goods to sell while hanging out with gory dead folks and listen to none other than death metal bands play live on stage. Eating Primanti Bros. and Moe's, it was a perfect day of weather to reclaim the Guinness Book of World Records for Largest Zombie gathering in the world. Established here in 2006 at Zombiefest hosted by The It's Alive Show, and held in 2007 and 2008, the record has changed hands since.
The unofficial tally was 4,800 and then on facebook it was said to be at 5,000. So I hope to hear soon the official number that will be recorded by Guinness.
