Things go BUMP in the night. When things BUMP In Tucson, it’s for a good cause.
The Tucson Zombie walk, now in its Seventh un-dead year, will again bring forth its un-living legions to raise Funds and Food for the Tucson Community Food Bank!
Rejoice: It is the time of year when a young man’s thoughts turn to the simple pleasures in life: rising from the dead, cannibalism, and widespread destruction!

Sounds like another creepy, undead event in the heart of downtown Tucson. If you missed last year’s walk (it’s actually more like a shuffle & stumble as these creatures don’t walk well), click here to view my very own photo gallery posted on Halloween.

Be scared. Be there.
