Braining Day

In The Walking Dead, the so-called survivors sure kill a lot of zombies. Don’t you ever feel for them? We mean, the walkers are just trying to get by like anybody else in this crazy world. It’s not their fault they love the taste of human flesh and brains. You can show your zombie solidarity at Zombie Walk 6, the annual undead outbreak held in downtown Phoenix. Last year, more than 20,000 undead limped and moaned over the two-mile route through downtown Phoenix. With live music, food vendors, and free zombie makeovers for the first 400 attendees who make a food donation, this year’s horde may be the biggest the world’s ever seen. Don’t tell Sheriff Rick.

Zombie Walk 6 starts at 2 p.m. Saturday, October 25, with the actual walking part scheduled to begin at approximately 6 p.m. The festival’s held at Heritage & Science Park, 115 North Sixth Street. Visit for more.
