The eleventh annual Zombie Walk on Mass street is kicking off in less than an hour.
The Zombie Walk is part of a larger event sponsored by Wake the Dead called Halloweenfest.
On the agenda as well is an attempt at a world record, the most zombies performing the Thriller dance. There will be food trucks and carnival games as well as a haunted house.
Wake the Dead will be transformed into a haunted house that opens at 4 p.m.
Zombie walk organizers encourage you to invite your family and bring your friends, but said it might be better to leave your pets at home.
Lawrence Humane Society is a primary sponsor for this event and they say large crowds and gory costumes can be highly stressful for your animal. Masks and makeup are particularly overwhelming for dogs. The society wants the event to be creepy, but comfortable for all. Proceeds from the walk go back to the animals at the society.
