    The tenth annual Louisville Zombie Walk occurred last night, and it was my very first time ever attending. I went with my best friend, Jamie, and we participated in our greatest attempt at portraying the living dead. The roads were closed on Bardstown Road from Eastern Parkway to Highland Avenue, and the dead began roaming the streets at 8:29 p.m. There were families that lined the sidewalks to enjoy a show full of zombies, hunters, and notable characters from films, video games, television shows, and comic books that added their own unique, undead style.

    Some zombies were in full character, and they would run up on the sidewalks to growl or bite at the spectators. There was even an unintended show at the end of the walk when a group of hunters were attacked by zombies that wanted a bite. The hunters fired their weapons, the zombies fell to the ground, and then they would get back up again. I don't think the hunters were aiming for the head, but my zombie knowledge tells me that that's where they needed to shoot...

    The Highland Taproom was very welcoming, and zombies had the chance to cool off with a drink as local bands took the stage. Some band members were dressed for the occasion, and everyone put on a fantastic show. It was the perfect ending for the zombie walk! However, it didn't seem like the walk had ended because participators were still in full character. There was a man that would sneak up from behind others with a chainsaw, children were growling at adults that were eating dinner on the sidewalk at nearby restaurants, and a few would appear from out of nowhere with a scream (and yes, they made me jump a few times).

    The evening certainly felt like Halloween in August, and it was definitely full of blood, guts, and gore. I am so new to the Louisville Zombie Walk, but I cannot wait to go again next year! Check out the photos below to get a glimpse of the evening:
