We are living in a time of zombies, it seems. Seriously, The Walking Dead is immensely popular, there are countless video games that have you fight undead hordes, and scientists have even done studies on the plausibility of a real-life outbreak. But if you just can’t get enough of zombie-themed fun, Audubon Park holds their eighth annual Zombietoberfest today, full of plenty of zombie-themed Halloween activities. There will be an “undead” market with zombie and Halloween themed vendors, as well as food trucks, a zombie and zombie hunter costume contest, a scavenger hunt, kids’ carnival games, and a zombie crawl, where those dressed like zombies are welcome to moan, shuffle and stumble together. The whole family is invited to attend; just please leave your zombie-hunting weapons at home.
