FORT MYERS, Fla.- One of Fort Myers' signature events scared up quite a crowd downtown on Saturday. People of all ages were made up in creepy costumes. Professional make-up artists from local cosmetology schools were on hand to "zombify" the living.
ZombiCon entered its sixth year in the River District, taking its roots from the film "Day of the Dead," which was filmed in Fort Myers.
According to ZombiCon's official website, the event is organized by “Pushing DaiZies, Inc.”, an official 501c3 non-profit to benefit the arts and local partner charities.
At ZombiCon 2011, over 3,800 pounds of food were collected for the Harry Chapin Food Bank, and 127 pints of blood were donated to the Lee Memorial Blood Center.
