On Saturday, April 26, zombies will return to roam the streets of Lake Worth for the second annual LDUB Zombie Crawl. If you thought last year’s was a romp’n rampage, you’re in for twice the treat this go-around.
Third Eye Adventures, in cooperation with Wheels for Kids, Enigma Haunt, South Shores Tavern, Brogues Down Under, Dave’s Last Resort & Raw Bar, Rhum Shak, Igot’s Martiki Bar, Havana Hideout, RedTrunks, LULA, the CRA, Merchants of Downtown Lake Worth (MOD), the Lake Worth Herald, Trinkets & Treasures, Downtown Chiropractic, the Clay-Glass-Metal-Stone Gallery and Sticky Graphix will unleash LDUB Zombie Crawl II from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tickets cost $15, and all proceeds from the crawl benefit the amazing work of Big Dog Ranch Rescue.
Zombies will proceed to the ground zero processing center at South Shores Tavern & Patio Bar (502 Lucerne Ave.). Early check-in is between 4 and 5:30 p.m., with registration for the crawl continuing until after 8 p.m. After checking in, each newly minted member of the undead will receive a zombie shelter map, indicating zombie-friendly establishments participating in the crawl, along with a few goodies provided by local sponsors. The map also includes hints of special “undead incidents” occurring in the area throughout the evening.
There will be several zombie guides in the area to corral the living dead during each of the planned “incidents” (if you’re a “Thriller” fan, one of them will be of particular interest to the zombie in you), and a complimentary beverage station will be situated at the corner of K and Lake avenues, with bottled water, soda and other drinks to nourish less beer-minded participants.
For the fashionable zombie that wants to look his or her best, but needs a little help to get that “walking dead” look, Enigma Haunt (www.enigmahaunt.com) will be on hand from 4 to 7 p.m. with professional makeup artists, first come, first served. The cost is $5, and because of demand, crawlers are highly encouraged to show up early for check-in.
At 7 p.m., the zombie masses will be turned loose for the crawl. Numerous bars, restaurants and downtown merchants are prepared for this very special zombie infestation and will have themed food and drink specials, or other items for participants. For those whose sense of competition isn’t limited by the bounds of “undeadness,” they and their friends can form their own hordes. These hordes will have opportunities throughout the evening to win tickets with prizes and recognition at the end of the night for the winners.
There will be a costume contest with prizes in three categories: Best Zombie, Most Spirited, Worst Zombie Ever and Sexiest Zombie Alive. Local celebrity judges include Katie McBroom, Austin Brookley, Greg Rice, Wes Blackman and Emily Theodossakos.
Big Dog Ranch Rescue will also be on hand to give everyone an opportunity to discover the wonderful work going on there. Throughout the evening, there will also be filming for Beach Zombie Rampage: Kick’n It In The LDUB, a low-budget zombie thriller set in Lake Worth.
Tickets can be purchased at the South Shores Tavern & Patio Bar (502 Lucerne Ave.) and Rhum Shak (802 Lake Ave.). For more information, or to pre-order event t-shirts, contact Keiran O’Shay at email@example.com.
