Village Invasion

Posted by captain cruella

Type: Crawl of the Dead (Booze involved),

Location: Saugerties, Ulster, NY, US

The Village Invasion will occur in the Village of Saugerties. Full details forth coming as we get more sponsors for terrorizing the streets!

Village Invasion… make sure you drag your corpses up and down the main streets of the Village of Saugerties. Rest your weary bones at local watering holes for some drink specials, (who doesn’t enjoy a good bloody mary?) We’re working on photographers and a videographer as well as prizes for the best dead celebrity look-a-like, the best executed zombie, and best pin-up zombie. Map and itinerary to follow. Stay tuned…

UPDATE: 7/21/10
So we’ve been charging full steam ahead and we have our first meeting with the Village board on August 2nd. We have confirmed photographers and a video person. I have been procurring LOTS of awesome prizes from the zombie interweb world ( -HUGS- you all rock!) and have plans to finalize map with route as soon as we wrangle with the red tape. The next course of action is making sure the town is prepared for us and postering the world. 87 days and counting until town wide infection. Stay tuned!

UPDATE 8/15/10

You certainly do NOT want to miss this event. We have- takes a deep breathe- QUITE the line up so far…
We have Lucky Chocolates with sweet treats and gory desserts being offered up for the night. Dave’s coffee house and wine bar with VOODELIC playing in the window stage under black light, Will Nixon reading excerpts from his book at the Inquiring Minds book store, drinks specials at the pubs, shops staying open late and adding to the overall ambiance of the evening, photographers, amazing gifts to give away for the costume prizes, The Hudson Valley Horrors roller derby team’s ZomBsquad coming to promote for their bout the following weekend, I’ve heard rumor of some LI Roller Rebels appearing as well! ( maybe a roller derby scuffle to ensue?) and so much more coming in daily my brain is ready to explode!! PLEASE register, pass this on and COME! I have in the works right now a map and an event route for those coming and will post directions for those of you coming from out of town. Remember without YOU the Village Invasion is nothing. Come and join the Leagues on October 16th! Spread the infection! Viva la Zombie!

NEW UPDATE!!!!!!!! 9/20/10
Not sure where to begin but here’s the long and short of it all.

Also on hand will be the Ulster Biorecovery Death Scene clean up crew to hand out some goodies and add to the festivities! Also noted there is a buzz to project some movies onto the buildings in town.. such horro classics as Night of the living dead and Freaks and also the classic White Zombie. There will be MANY MANY prizes as we keep getting them sent to our cache so DO prepare yourself. Be sure to see me , Captain Cruella at the Rosendale Zombie crawl on Sept 25th and possibly the Garlic Festival and then on the 9th The Saugerties Farmers Market at 10 am presenting a makeup demonstration complete with a make up list you can be sent out with to make your own zombie magic!

OK, so far we have had some very cool progress. I would like it if everyone registered here, it’s getting a tad overwhelming with FB and random emails about the event. I got a response from the VERY cool about given some amazing gifts as prizes for the event. I will be hitting the streets this weekend on the quest for more totally awesome prizes from local shop owners in the Village of Saugerties. A Map will go up this week on FB so PLEASE if you’ve visited this site and you’re on FB send a shout out to Cruella Moxham and /or find Village Invasion-Crawl of the Dead group.

I am organizing a Zombiefest for Rosendale on Sept 25th w/ a raindate of Oct 2nd…
One of our volunteers sent me your page…Looks awesome!
Maybe we could colaborate.
I definitely think you should advertize your event at our event.
Ours will tentatively start at 2pm with a parade, followed by bands and vendors and dj’s at the Willow Kiln, followed by a creature feature at the rosendale theatre.
I am a newbie to this type of thing, so any advise you could give is greatly appreciated.
Will foward more details as they emerge.
Zombie Power!
