Hamilton City is turning into a post apocalyptic sanctuary for the walking dead in readiness for the arrival of Jon Bernthal. The star of TV2’s hit gruesome drama The Walking Dead (Wednesday’s 9.30pm, TV2) is coming to Hamilton exclusively for the Armageddon Expo on Saturday April 14th and Sunday April 15th, 2012.
To celebrate the arrival of one of televisions biggest anti-heroes, Hamilton’s walking dead will be shuffling through city streets in an Zombie Walk on Saturday April 14th.
Armageddon Expo Event Director, Bill Geradts is delighted to be celebrating Jon Bernthal’s imminent arrival in Hamilton with a Zombie Walk.
“I’m looking forward to seeing a great deal of walking dead fans wandering around Hamilton city – it’s certainly not something you see everyday!” he said.
“We’re delighted that Jon is coming to New Zealand and we know he’s looking forward to being hosted by Hamilton Armageddon Expo fans.”
From it’s inception in 1995, the Armageddon Expo has grown to become the largest fantasy event in Australasia. With shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and now Hamilton it’s clear to see the Armageddon Expo continues to embody the ever growing pulp culture phenomenon.
“Armageddon is a real melting pot of zombies, Twilighters, anime enthusiasts, comic collectors, Transformers fans and cult tv show devotees all mixed in and generally having a fantastic weekend” says Event Director Bill Geradts.
Further celebrity guests heading to Hamilton for the Armageddon Expo include stars from the Twilight Saga films, wolf pack duo Bronson Pelletier (Jared) and Tinsel Korey (Emily), along with Volturi vampire (Demetri) Charlie Bewley. They’ll be joined by iconic Matt Frewer of Max Headroom fame as well as Paul McGillion (Dr. Carson Beckett) from Stargate Atlantis and John Levene (Sergeant John Benton) from the Classic Doctor Who series.
