The Walking Dead Come To Sonora
Holiday - Halloween jack-o-lantern
Sonora, CA -- Watch out! Zombies are taking over the streets of downtown Sonora tonight for a food drive.
Don't be scared. It's just the second annual Walking Dead Sonora and these Zombies are hitting the sidewalks for charity.
Organizers say last year they collected several hundred pounds of food and pet supplies for the Tuolumne County Action Agency Food Bank and The Humane Society.
Co-founder Michael Millers says, "Zombies, human or animal, can't live on brains alone (laugh). We decided to incorporate those to charities so we are asking people to bring non-perishable food items and or food/pet supplies to the Courthouse Park in Sonora where we will collect them."
Anyone can join in the fun. There will also be a make-up and picture booth to capture the scariest looks and a costume contest! Miller says the pictures will be put up on the internet so people can download them.
Tonight's fright night starts at 4:30 at the Courthouse Park in Sonora.
