Annual zombie walk returns to Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Saturday marked international zombie day. Communities around the globe engaged in zombie themed benefit walks including the Cape Fear.

This year marked the 11th annual zombie walk in Wilmington.

Chairman Denny Best says each year the walk supports the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina but, this year was especially important because many are still in desperate need.

Best says this walk is a creative way to get people involved.

“Instead of just dropping off a check and saying a charity, they are more motivated to come out to something they can have fun at,” said Best. “It kind of started off as an adult event, when we started this off years ago, but kids have gotten really into it.”

For the last 6 years, CFCC and UNCW theater students have also offered zombie makeup sessions.
