The third annual Lima Zombie Walk will start at Faurot Park in Lima on Saturday, October 20, 2012. The Zombies will gather in the park across from Woodlawn Cemetery at 2 pm and the walk will begin at 3 pm.   For the uninitiated, the Zombie Walk is a simple and fun concept – wear your grubbiest zombie gear, lurch your way down the street with the other zombies and stay in character, grunting and slurring on the hunt for fresh brains and flesh. The Walk is a family-friendly event. After the Walk, join the zombies back at Faurot Park for the official Zombie Walk after-party!

There will be prizes for the most original zombie and the zombie who brings in the most donations. (Get Walk Sponsors!) There will also be live music by bands such as NYN9 and others (TBA). Additionally, there will be gift bags for the kiddos, vendors in attendance and plenty of eats!

The Zombie Walk will raise funds for pet rescues Deb’s Dogs and Happy Tails Pet Partners. Both organizations rescue pets, provide foster families, supply medical treatment and training and adopt dogs out to good ‘furever’ homes. And, that costs money! The Zombie Walk sponsors are asking for a $5 per zombie minimum donation. Only five bucks and a great time will help so many wonderful dogs!

Everyone is invited! It doesn’t matter if you walk or watch as zombies take over Lima! And, don’t forget to bring your camera!
