Burlington Zombie Walk [SIV51] 

Last Saturday the undead lurched along the streets of downtown Burlington looking for fresh brains to munch on. The innocent town folks did not stand a chance against this rowdy gang of braindead flesh eaters.

According to Wikipedia, zombie walks have been taking place in urban city centers since 2001. The Burlington Zombie Walk is in its second year and was organized by Adrienne Goulette.

This year there was a solid turnout despite the rain. Participants dressed in fanciful costumes (prom dresses, football jerseys, hospital garb), soaked themselves in blood, and cavorting down Church St screeching at the top of their lungs.

The zombie walk came to a close at Nectar's where the living dead munched on french fries and BLTs (Brains, Lettuce and Tomatoes).

Deep Soda, Pose Dead - Collected & Destroyed Vol. 2, "Leviathan Hades" provide the oh so perfect zombie music.

PS: As fate would have it, after 50 episodes of Stuck in Vermont, The Smittens were able to rerecord the snippet of their song that plays in each vlog intro. Can you tell the difference? WE LOVE IT!! Thanks Smittens!

    Workers have begun dismantling the old coal-fired power plant on the Burlington waterfront which closed down in 1986. The long-awaited redevelopment is removing the outer brick layer of the building and retaining the interior steel framework, the centerpiece of a new city park on a waterfront that was once devoted to industry.
