The Lawrence Zombie Walk seems to get bigger every year. This season, there were about 1,000 ghouls lose on the sidewalks downtown. Each dead guy pays a fee to get all gorey and join in the march of the corpses, and the money goes to help the Humane Society.
This year, the weather wasn't the best. We like to eat dinner somewhere with outdoor seating and watch the show as the hoard takes over the sidewalks.
But, as we ordered our food, the first drop of rain fell on our heads, so we moved indoors to enjoy our meal. It worked out well, there was live music in the restaurant from Mustard, of one of Sugarwing's favorite bands, Dumptruck Butterlips.
So, we took our time, relaxed, enjoyed the music and the meal, then took a stroll with the walking dead.
We didn't see all 1,000 corpses, but what we saw was plenty spooky.
Some of them had been dead for a very long time.
There are plenty of zombie families on parade. And lots of strollers. Sugarwings was wishing she was in it. Maybe next year. I enjoy watching it so much, I don't think I'd enjoy being in it as much as being a bystander.
