City’s Greed Moves Harrisburg Zombie Walk

Once again, city fathers made a stupid move in trying to force the Harrisburg, PA zombie walk organizers to pay exorbitant permit and insurance fees, which resulted in the walk moving from the downtown area to a nearby mall. If I had a business in downtown Harrisburg I would be outraged at the stupidity of such a move. I’m sure the Harrisburg downtown area has lost business to the malls and now they will lose even more since zombie walkers do need to eat and drink as they shamble through an area. Local folks who come to watch the zombies also spend money while in the area. Pretty dumb. You can read the full story of what happened in the article over on Here’s a video from the 2009 walk – there’s something very cool about seeing all these zombies shuffling across the bridge.
