Citizens of Seattle have taken matters into their own hands deciding to celebrate the recent news of the holy rapture and apocalypse due to begin in May with a massive Zombie Walk and Charity Rock concert on Saturday, July 2nd at the 3rd annual Red, White and Dead Zombie Block Party for this once-in-a-lifetime event.
This Fourth of July weekend, thousands of Seattle’s undead return to feed on brains and representing their Emerald City by shuffling their back into the history books to reclaim the Guinness World Record for “Largest Gathering of Zombies.” New Jersey currently holds the official record with 4,093 Zombies set back in October 2010.
This year, Red, White and Dead Zombie Block party returns with a massive Thriller Flash Mob, Fashionably Undead Costume Contest and Guinness World Record Zombie Walk attempt. 2011 also introduces new features and activities from a live music concert series, mobile food challenge and massive beer gardens benefitting the local non-profit charity, Reel Grrls.
Event Producer Ryan Reiter, “This is popular fan culture at it’s best, it’s the ultimate kodak moment celebrating the ever-popular, Zombie that helps raise money and awareness for local charities happening right here in Seattle annually.

Symptoms are often include fun, laughter and highly contagious for people of all ages.
Attendees are strongly urged to dress up like the undead to avoid being eaten and ensure fun factor by the fellow Zombies to help Seattle reclaim the Guinness World Record, once and for all.

You know things aren't looking good when your enemy's enemy is laughing at you.
While Rick Ross contends he's not yet excited by anything 50 Cent has thrown his way, the Game — 50 Cent's former protégé and constant thorn in the side — sure is.
The Game called Seattle's KUBE 93 on Thursday (February 5), and when DJ Eddie Francis asked him what he thought about beef between 50 Cent and Rick Ross, the Game had a shocking reply.
"For the first time in four years, I'm kind of low-key riding with 50 on this one," he said. "For the first time in four years, I'm siding with this dude."
The Game said things are not looking good for Ross. He laughed about the most recent 50 Cent video, in which 50 took the mother of Ross' son shopping after she revealed some personally damaging details about their relationship.
"He's taking [Ross'] baby momma shopping," the Game laughed. "She's trying on fur coats, and he got the Stevie Wonder jam in the background."
Since Rick Ross released "Mafia Music," the track that threw the initial jab at 50, he has been on the receiving end of a verbal beatdown. Fif released his own dis track, "Officer Ricky," and followed it with a taunting YouTube video. 50 also released an animated clip addressing Ross on ThisIs50.com.
Ross hasn't been nearly as active. "We gonna give him 48 hours," Ross told Shade 45's Angela Yee. "Time to come up with another [track]!" He also called Hot 97 to speak with Miss Info on Monday and released a video for "Mafia Music," which took a subtle shot at 50.
The Game did offer to help Ross out, telling the Miami rapper to get in touch with him as soon as possible. "Rick Ross, reach out to my folks. If you can't, find Eddie Francis up in Seattle. Call him, and then have him call me up on three-way so I can get you up out of this mess.
"Rick Ross, holla at your boy, man," Game continued. "50 eating you, boy."
