‘Undead’ parade the Rivermarket

On Sunday night I ventured downtown to shoot zombies, a hobby that I hope to experience one day, but this day it was with camera in hand. What were these mindless, walking bags of brain eating flesh doing downtown?

Believe it or not, zombies give to charity, and the Little Rock Zombie Walk was hosted to help local animal charities. For the zombies to walk, they needed only one dollar and a can of dog food. They also had to sign waivers promising not to act like zombies for fear of citations from the LRPD.

This is not the first time zombies have ransacked downtown Little Rock, though not associated with the same people, it seems to be an annual event picked up and hosted by a local, this year by an Evelle LeChat . Sunday (10-10-10) was world zombie day, a full 24 hours dedicated to my favorite hellions.
