Photos: Halloween Parties, Pedal Craft 3, and Zombie Walk 5 in Metro Phoenix
Never leave your sidekick at home, especially on Halloween.
Another raging weekend, complete with Halloween partying, zombies, and bike art, means a whole lotta photo evidence. Did we take your picture?
Tempe Halloween Parties 2013 The New Times cameras hit up Halloween celebrations all along Mill Avenue in Tempe on Saturday, October 26. Over the course of the evening, we encountered costume revelers at Mill Avenue Cue Club, Zuma Grill, the Monster Masquerade at Fat Tuesday, and other spots along the city's main drag.
Cheers to another rad round of Pedal Craft.
Pedal Craft at MonOrchid Gallery in Dowtown Phoenix, 10/25/13 Pedal Craft, self proclaimed as "a bicycle themed poster party in urban Phoenix," brings together bicycles and design to cap off Phoenix Design Week 2013. The event took place at MonOrchid Gallery in Phoenix and featured bicycle-related poster designs from 15 local designers. A percentage of the proceeds from poster sales was donated to The Welcome to America Project, a non-profit organization that creates community connections and builds bridges of neighborly understanding by providing furniture, basic necessities, education, and additional resources to newly arriving refugees.
Don't let the zombies get in your head.
Zombie Walk 5 in Downtown Phoenix, 10/26/13 The Downtown Phoenix Partnership presents Zombie Walk 5, the biggest zombie walk Phoenix has hosted to date. An estimated 12,000 participants marched in the actual walk, while an estimated 18-20,000 attended the festival. Shortly after Phoenix Comicon, the Downtown Phoenix Partnership website posted "If this past weekend's Phoenix Comicon Zombie Walk was any indication, Zombie Walk 5 on October 26, 2013 is going to be legendary. Guinness World Record legendary, even."
If the estimated numbers are accurate, this boast could actually be true since the most current Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of Zombies is 9,592, a record held by the New Jersey Zombie Walk on October 5, 2013. If measures were taken to make this record "Officially Amazing" by Guinness standards, we could soon be on the map in the zombie world.
