Hide your kids, hide your wife, and, most importantly, hide your brains because the undead are taking over Phoenix once again.
The annual Downtown Phoenix Zombie Walk is making its sixth return to Heritage and Science Park on Saturday, October 25. In past years, organizers of the community event have had more than 5,000 undead locals staggering through the streets of downtown. But this year, they'll need to nearly double number of zombie participants in order to achieve their goal: breaking the Guinness World Record.
Although not many details have been released yet, participants in previous zombie walks can expect the usual offering of undead face-painting, live music, and special deals from participating downtown restaurants and bars.
More details will be released as the date for Zombie Walk 6 approaches. For more information as well as updates on where to go and what to wear (note: we've seen zombie versions of everyone from Richard Simmons to Walter White), follow Downtown Phoenix Zombie Walk on Facebook or visit www.downtownphoenix.com/zombie.
