WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Don’t be surprised if you see zombies in downtown Wilmington this weekend.

Doors open at noon at the Calico Room located at 107 South Front Street. Admission is $5 or 5 non-perishable food items.
Drama students from Cape Fear Community College will participate as volunteer makeup artists, helping to transform the living into the walking dead. For $5 you’ll get a basic zombie makeover. For $10, you’ll get a more in-depth makeup job, which includes a latex application. The makeup line closes at 3:30 p.m.
Participants are encouraged to dress up as well. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of a raffle and a costume contest.
An adult bar crawl, and kiddie candy crawl will follow a group photo taken at the United States Post Office steps downtown. The night ends with a “Rave to the Grave” after party at 9 p.m.
The event has donated over 50,000 meals in year’s past. More information is available on the official Facebook event page.
