The family-friendly walk will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Oswego’s East Park. Zombies will make their way across the bridge along Route 104, ending at Greene’s Ale House.
There is no admission charge to participate, although zombies are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to benefit Oswego’s Human Concerns Center food pantry.
The event will also collect toiletry items as part of 12-year-old Oswego resident Emily Bradshaw’s drive to provide 300 personal care bags for the local homeless population.
Organizers will set up a booth at Oswego’s CNY Great Pumpkin Festival, also happening Saturday, Sept. 29 in East Park, to offer information or makeup tips for those aiming to get zombified.
At 6:10 p.m. in East Park, local author Tim Nekritz will present a dramatic reading of a new work of historical fiction, “The Lost Letters of Jehoshaphat Pratt: How Zombies Saved Oswego During the War of 1812.”
