I recently learned that when the inevitable zombie apocalypse occurs, which is sooner than you think, I will be among the first to die. On Saturday, when zombies invaded Mexico City, instead of running away like any normal person, I grabbed my camera and went into the fray. So if you see me dragging my feet, mumbling something about brains with my camera around my neck, then don’t be alarmed because that is normal. But if you see me doing that with a giant hole in my head, you will know that I am a zombie and you should run.
The zombie invasion from last week appears to be contained, but let’s take a look back at the annual Marcha Zombie and the madness that occurred.
Mexico City Zombie March
We noticed a large crowd had amassed on Juarez avenue, a main thoroughfare in downtown, so we stopped to see what was happening. Then we saw it coming like something out of a horror movie – literally thousands of zombies shuffled towards us.
Again, the zombie parade from Saturday seems to be under control and the only marches on Juarez street are anti-government protests, so all is normal again. However, I have seen the future, and it is terrifying.
Bonus Features: Zombies Out of Context
The best part of the zombie walk was afterwards when it broke up and I could take photos of the participants out of context.
Is everyone else out in the world okay?
Did the zombies show up at your town too?
This is really weird stuff. I’ve never heard of this day or parade. But I spent very little time (almost none) in Mexico City (…big ugly dirty city).
I guess it is to raise charity. In years past, they have had about 10,000 participants!
We have actually loved Mexico City. The central area has been great to visit for us.
it’s what I like least about you…you’re always so dang positive
I love your captions!
God!! Some of these people are scary as eff!!!!
I know, right!
Wow, I’m glad you made it out in one piece. The clown IS disturbing!
I know. I keep having nightmares 🙂
This is awesome. Thank you for capturing it and reporting about it. 🙂
You are welcome. I felt it was my duty to inform the world.
HA! Awesome. I was snorting with laugher at the Zombie texting and the Zombies with smiling or passive expression on their faces. I ❤ Zombie walks! We had one in Edmonton not too long ago and my daughter and her friend went. Every year they have a theme and this year it was clowns. Some of them were terrifying! My girl is pathologically afraid of clowns so the evil mother in me thought that whole scenario was hilarious.
Or the good mother in you could call it immersion therapy to help her out? I’d never heard of one before. Is it for charity in Edmonton?
Heh. That’s a good one. Yes…immersion therapy!
Yeppers, they collect food for the food bank.
Awesome post Jeff! Sitting here with a stoopid grin on my face. We loved Mexico City – it has a great vibe, and apparently zombies too!
We love it here too. We have had six days here but could stay longer if we had time. I am glad you enjoyed.
