The Annual Zombie-Walk in Tel Aviv was created to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim. During this holiday, many have the custom to dress up in costume and take part in marches, feasts, and parades. While many parades have a more general costume requirement, this parade encourages all its participants to dress as zombies!
In previous years, nearly 4,000 zombie participants paraded down the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel for the zombie-walk. The walk is organized entirely by volunteers and is open to all that wish to participate, so it is encouraged to bring as many friends and family members as you wish. They say that the more bloody and nasty your zombie costume is, the better! This year, the walk will take place March 18.
