Zombies were all over Salem last weekend!  And I don’t mean the people with their eyes glued to their cellphone screens.

Zombies, young and old, came to the Commons to spook the public.

Jason brought a guest to the walk. But he or she wasn’t moving much.

There were also some zombie dogs at the event.

Jason was there to say hi to the victims, I mean visitors.

The Zombie Walk is a family friendly event.  After all, the family that stalks together stays together.

But, fear not, there were also zombie fighters at the walk.  They look a little outnumbered if you ask me.  That’s the thing.  Most of the participants prefer to dress as zombies or other creepy characters.

Salem being Salem there were many other people dressed up for the Halloween season.

Maybe this doctor and queen can help save us from the zombies!

Or maybe these foxes can help save us!

Or maybe this is a job for this Wonder Dog!

The talented Leann from Making Faces By LeeAnn was there to help everyone look their spookiest.

After a quick game of kickball, the zombies took the streets of Salem (the route went up New Liberty St to Essex St, down Artists Row, to the wharf and back to the Common if you’re familiar with the area).

I haven’t heard of any incidents but keep your eyes open if you do go to Salem.  They could be anywhere!

Below are some videos from the zombie walk.
