Asbury Park Zombie Walk Breaks World Record
Thousands of the undead invaded the Asbury Park Boardwalk Saturday breaking the Guinness World Record for a second time.
According to the group’s Facebook page, the New Jersey Zombie Walk drew 9,592 participants to its sixth annual walk, setting the record for the largest gathering of zombies in the world.
The Asbury Park Press reports the New Jersey Zombie Walk won back its title this year, after a Minneapolis bar crawl, of 8, 027 walkers, nearly doubled the Asbury Park mob’s record of 4,093 last year.
Shortly after 5 p.m., Jason Meehan, the creator of the zombie walk, picked up a microphone and addressed the undead. “New Jersey zombies – we did it again!” he yelled, as it was announced that the official zombie count was 9,592.
“How does it feel to be two-time world record-holders?” he continued. “We are strong! We are unbreakable! The Jersey Shore lives!”
