Hundreds of goblins and ghouls gathered Thursday at the South Park gazebo in anticipation of the 15th annual Lawrence Zombie Walk.
The horde of zombies started their walk down Massachusetts Street at sunset. Spectators gathered on the sidewalk in folding lawn chairs and on restaurant patios, cheering and taking photos all the way to Seventh Street. Residents showed off their creative costume skills, with characters ranging from undead Girl Scouts to zombie killers.
The free, all-ages event — presented by The Granada and 1313 Mockingbird Lane — featured a costume contest, makeup and bloodbath stations, and food vendors including KC Corndog, Twist of Taste Indian Tacos, and Archibowls. The event is also a fundraiser for the Lawrence Humane Society.
The event keeps getting bigger every year. Now that the undead have been put to rest after the 2022 Zombie Walk, it’s time to start looking toward next year.
