Zombies to take over downtown Wilmington this weekend

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The 7th annual Zombie Walk kicks off in the Port City Saturday afternoon. 

The walking dead will come out in droves to gather donations for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

The troupe starts at The Underground on North Front Street at 4:30 p.m. You can come "pre-zombified" or show up at noon to get layers of grotesque makeup put on by volunteers from CFCC and UNCW. Makeup costs $5.

Admission for the walk is three non-perishable food items along or $5. 

This is one of the critical times for the food bank, gathering 50% of their yearly donations during October, November, and December. That's why officials say every little bit helps. One zombie's donation will help to feed 25 people.

You can go to www.foodbankcenc.org for more information.
