Help Us Zombify Pittsfield (and fight hunger the FUN way!)

ZOMBIFY PITTSFIELD
Oct. 11-13, 2012
Art! Films! Pubs! Prom! Fighting Hunger!

In solidarity with allies in cities around the country, the Berkshire-based Zombie Action Committee will fight hunger for World Zombie Day on October 13, 2012, by sponsoring a series of cultural, educational and recreational activities October 11-13 in the newly designated Upstreet Cultural District of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. A series of uniquethemed events, including a zombie prom, art exhibit, film showings and our legendary annual Zombie Pub Crawl will be used to generate nonperishable donations for local food banks while generating business for the downtown district and raising awareness about resilient community building in the Berkshires.
