Warning!  The Walking Dead are dragging their bag ‘O bones in downtown Phoenix Saturday for the annual Zombie Walk.  Zombies may feast on the living and nibble on tasty chunks of warm human flesh, but they also want to feed the hungry.  Thousands of Zombie’s will hit the streets for Zombie Walk 6 in an effort

to raise ten-thousand pounds of food for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.  Just bring some non-perishable food items and drop them off before the death walk. The Zombie Walk has sprung to life since its beginning in 2009 with an estimated attendance of over ten-thousand Zombies. 

Zombie Walk 6 is a free, family friendly (and bloody) community festival featuring live music.  Kids can hang out in the  Lil Zombie Zone kid’s area and adults can chug-a-lug from the Four Peaks beer gardens.  The Zombie fest brings out  some of the best homegrown special effects makeup you’ll ever see.  And the 1.3-mile limp through the streets of downtown Phoenix has a few gory surprises along the way including appearance by the Department of Zombie Defense and the Arizona Ghostbusters.

Zombie Walk 6 returns to Heritage & Science Park in Downtown Phoenix on Saturday, Oct. 24. and this year the horde craves more than braaaains: It wants to make history as it attempts to break Asbury Park, N.J.’s 2013 record walk of 9,592 zombies.

The party starts at 2 and the Zombie Walk begins at dusk at 6 p.m.
