It’s time for some Fall fun in Asbury Park!
October is a busy month in Asbury Park; you won’t believe all the Fall fun going on the next few Saturdays.
This Saturday, October 7th, it’s the 10th annual Asbury Park Zombie Walk! This is always a frighteningly good time. A Zombie Walk is an organized gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes and then converge quickly in a public area for surprise and fun. Our Zombie Walk has set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest gathering of zombies” two separate times. In 2010 the record was claimed with 4,093 undead counted on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The record was later reclaimed in 2013 with 9,592 participants. Show up at the Boardwalkand join in the Jello brain-eating contest, give blood at the Bloodmobile, then shamble down Cookman Avenue.
Saturday, October 14th is the next edition of Asbury Underground. Visit our event page to find out all about this wonderful day of free music, and our show here at Backward Glances with Tara Dente.
On Saturday, October 21st, it’s time for more free music at the Asbury Park Porchfest. The concept is based on an annual event that started in Ithaca, NY and is now held in multiple towns and cities across the country. Watch local musicians playing on front porches of beautiful old houses all around Asbury Park. Proceeds from the event will go to the Asbury Park Shade Tree Commission.
If all this fall fun makes you hungry and thirsty, it’s Octoberfest time at the Asbury Park Festhalle and Biergarten. This event is being held every weekend throughout October. There will be polka bands, pig roasts, games, and lots of beer.
And don’t forget that you can stop into Backward Glances to shop for the coolest Halloween costume in the midst of all this fun.
