The walking dead take over Carytown this Saturday for the Richmond Zombie Walk

Don’t be too alarmed if you see a large group of reanimated people in search of brains during your Saturday shopping.


Ergh, arrgh, blerrch. What’s that? It’s zombie talk for “It’s the Richmond Zombie Walk, people!”

Your Carytown shopping might be interrupted Saturday by lurching zombies as they shuffle, moan and groan their way through the shopping district. You can join the fun by dressing up in all your ghoulish glory and get in step with the lurching horde. Or just show up to watch the spooky spectacle.

Last year, more than 600 people participated in the Zombie Walk, a Richmond tradition now in its 11th year.

The walk starts at Dixie Donuts this year, and loops around to neighborhood, ending at The Byrd Theatre. There will also be trick-or-treating and a dog costume contest this year; click through for more details.
