For the fashionable Zombie who just wants to look their best but has no idea on the proper makeup application, there will be a Ghastly Ghoul beauty station with professional makeup artists available to cater to your night of the living dead needs. There will be several Zombie Pub Scouts in the area to corral the living dead during each of the planned "incidents" (if you're a "Thriller" fan then one of them will be of particular interest to the zombie in you) and a complimentary beverage station situated at Studio 205 where bottled water, sodas, lady fingers, and the like can nourish the less beer minded participants. Special prizes will be raffled off throughout the evening followed by an end of the crawl event back at South Shores around  11:30PM. There, 3 grand prizes will be awarded for Best Zombie, Most Spirited Zombie and Worst Zombie Ever. Throughout the evening there will also be filming for Beach Zombie Rampage: Kick'n it in the LDUB, an upcoming local/community based low budget zombie thriller set in Lake Worth being produced by Keiran O'Shay and Margaret Murphy.
