Zombie Walk in Akron

When: Sat., April 23 2011

Halloween may still be some six months away, but that doesn't mean you can't stagger through the streets like a menacing, brain-chowing zombie. (Hell, some of us do that every Saturday!) Here's your opportunity to dress like the undead for a worthy cause: Since 2006, Akron's Zombie Walk and Festival has raised more than 5,000 pounds of food for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, a number organizers hope to increase via today's repeat event. What do the zombies get out of all this, you may ask? Besides the obvious thrill of pretending to eat your buddies' eyeballs, you can count on an afterparty at the venerable Akron wateringhole Annabell's, featuring live music, contests, giveaways, and plenty of fun. Cost is $5 and two cans of nonperishable food. Registration begins at noon, and the zombies stagger off at 3 p.m. (Get there early, and makeup artists will help you apply professional-quality gore for cheap.) Annabell's is at 782 West Market St. For more info and photos from last year, check out Oldschool Sinema on Facebook. — Chrissy Niehaus
