DeKalb Should Welcome Zombies

OK, I’m outing myself as a Halloween-o-phile. I’ve been thinking about this for a couple months.

zombie babyIf we want to get NIU students, local teens and hip families downtown, DeKalb should host a zombie walk during Halloween weekend. Locate zombie headquarters at the Egyptian Theatre to tie into its Amenti Haunted House, and develop fabulous downtown discounts for people dressing the part. Recruit bands to play “Thriller” and “Monster Mash.”

If this idea has legs (and/or braynz), remember where you heard it first. ;-)

  1. The world’s record number of Thriller dancers is around 15,000. It could be done here. It would take NIU students and people in town.

    There is an October 23rd football game in DeKalb against Central Michigan at 3:00 p.m. Corresponding to that date, at 6:00 p.m. Central Time is the annual Thrill the World simultaneous Thriller dance. Take a look:
