MEMPHIS, Texas — For the past 14 years, the Memphis Zombie Walk has raised food and money for the Mid-south Food Bank.

“We have raised tons, literally metric tons of food so you can’t imagine how many people that helps,” event coordinator Zachary Pepper said.

Friday, June 3, 2022, the group met again at Handy Park on Beale at, where make up artists turned ordinary people into zombies.

“We’re going to hop up, walk from here to G.E. Patterson park turn around and come back. We’ll be creeping out tourist and messing with our fellow Memphians as we go,” Pepper said.

The event was free to the public and no pre-registration was required to participate.

“If you like zombies, make yourself up. If you can't come down here get in line bring some canned foods and we will do you us. We aren't charging people for this, we are just fundraising," Pepper said.

The zombies started creeping around the city around 7 p.m.
