World Zombie Day 2017

World Zombie Day is an international annual event that grew from Pittsburgh’s first Zombie Walk at Monroeville Mall in 2006 — the setting for “Dawn of the Dead.” Now, more than 50 cities participate in the event. The annual undead parade, a constant contender for the title of largest zombie crawl in the world, draws thousands of blood-splattered “walking dead” and is expected to host even more onlookers and zombie bait than past parades.
