The living dead walked the streets of downtown Shreveport this afternoon.
Locals zombie enthusiasts dawned their best undead get-up to stalk Shreveporters for the Zombie Apocalypse Downtown Stagger and Shamble.
The event sponsored by SRAC and the Downtown Development Authority featured a zombie walk along with a costume contest and brain-eating competition.
Downtown Development Authority Executive Director "the past several years we've had a world wide zombie walk in downtown Shreveport and it was just an opportunity to expand it to make it more fun to invite more people from different locations it's all about getting people downtown whether they're dead or not. We like dead people downtown."
While local zombies showed how wild, weird, and wonderful it is to be a zombie, they also showed that zombies have hearts by collecting donations to benefit the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana..
