There was an awesome turnout at this year’s Asheville Zombiewalk in Aston Park! We loved seeing everyone from zombie kids to Zombie Jesus come out, shamble about, and revel in the season.
As part of this year’s festivities, we released our hoard of zombies upon downtown Asheville to engage in a photo scavenger hunt. Participants were asked to find a number of items on our scavenger hunt list, then email their batch to us.
We could not have anticipated the dozens of teams who participated and submitted their funny, quirky, spooky, and creative results! With such a great turnout, and so many great submissions to choose from, we were sure to look at each carefully in order to pick this year’s winners. In fact, after reviewing the results, we decided to add a few bonus winners to this year’s contest, and ran to the Halloween Superstore for more great prizes.
Without further hoo-doo, here are this year’s scavenger hunt winners:
