This Year’s ‘Living Dead Weekend’ Will Be the Ultimate Tribute to George Romero

Night of the Living Dead

It all began in Evans City, Pennsylvania, the shooting location for George A. Romero‘s game-changing masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead. So where better to celebrate the life and enduring legacy of the late Romero than in, well, Evans City?!

From October 20 – 22, The Living Dead Weekend will take over Evans City, PA, and this year’s event promises to be the biggest and best to date. For starters, the convention will play host to the Pittsburgh premiere of the new 4K restoration of Night of the Living Dead, and a public memorial for George Romero will take place on October 22.

“LDW 2017 is a full weekend of events including Movie Screenings, Film Location Tours, Celebrity Appearances, Film Prop Exhibits, Community Events and much more! We’re inviting everyone to celebrate all things zombies and especially the film that started it all, ‘ Night of the Living Dead ‘ where it all began, Evans City, PA!”

Additionally, stars from Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead and even Land of the Dead will be on hand to sign autographs, including Lori Cardille, Howard “Bub” Sherman, Joe Pilato, Tom Savini, Russ Streiner, and Eugene “Big Daddy” Clark.

As if all that wasn’t awesome enough, Romero superfan Lawrence Devincentz will be taking guests on tours of Night of the Living Dead and The Crazies filming locations.

There’s even going to be a “Pet Walk of the Living Dead” and pet costume contest!

      Part of living in Pittsburgh or the surrounding suburbs is looking at your home and rationally deciding how you’d zombie proof it just in case that shit really happened.

      • Oh, I’ve had a plan since I was a kid. The true gift of living here is watching Night of the Living Dead and taking a drink for every town on the TV that’s a safe zone that you’ve been to.

          Never trust a safe zone….

    That sounds truly amazing. I really wish I could go, but sadly it’s way too far away.
