MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - Hundreds of zombies are readying to rise from the dead and descend on a central Florida beach town.
More than 600 people in costumes dripping with fake blood attended the last Zombie Walk in April. Organizer Paul Lucas is expecting an even bigger turnout for Saturday night's event.
The 21-year-old college student says he organized the walks because he was bored and wanted to give locals something exciting to do. Watching the reactions of unsuspecting residents is also pretty fun too, he admitted.
The night will end with a tug-of-war battle over a kiddie pool filled with fake blood.
