The zombies have invaded Salem, MA. And I don’t just mean the ones engrossed with their phone screens wandering through the streets.
No, these zombies are participants in the annual Salem Zombie Walk.
There were zombies of all ages, attire and degrees of scariness. It’s never too early to get into the Halloween spirit and these people were definitely in the spirit of the season!
But, my favorite zombies have to be the families and children who have dressed up for the walk. After all, the families that stalk together stay together.
There’s nothing cuter than “zombie kids!”
The zombies arrived in a variety of different vehicles. “Witch Taxi.” How appropriate. Was her broom broken?
After a quick game of zombie kickball, they all got lined up and began the walk.
Although there weren’t any dogs in the zombie walk (although they are welcome), I did see these cute dogs on the way to the park.
Gatsby is a 1 year and 3 month old Golden Retriever.
Baloo (named after the character in The Jungle Book) is a 5 year old Pomeranian.
These two friends watched the parade from the window of their home. Perhaps I’ll see you next year…if the zombies don’t get you first!
Below are some videos from the festivities at the zombie walk.
