PopCap Games today announced their participation in the 2009 Halloween Village Parade with hordes of costumed plants and zombies in tow collectively scaring the crap out of parade-attendees.
Plants vs. Zombies, PopCap’s best selling game of 2009 was indeed a runaway hit, but to further the excitment around the game, PopCap wants you, and you, and you to come out, dressed as a macabre gardener or zombie and join in the festivities in Manhattan.
Immediately following the parade, PopCap will hold a costume contest granting prizes to the best cosplayers out there.
“Plants vs. Zombies seems to inspire people to new heights of zaniness, and we have the photos to prove it” laughed Garth Chouteau, vice president of public relations at PopCap. “We wanted to give those rabid PvZ fans a fun time and place to gather and celebrate their passion for the game. What better way than marching up 6th Avenue in New York’s historic Halloween parade!”
If you’re in the area this Halloween you’ll want to check it out as the Parade is heralded as one of the “100 Things To Do Before You Die,” but then again, if you’re already a zombie, you have an eternity, right?
