The Atlantic City Zombie Walk is being talked about as one of the most anticipated horror events. Also, participating in this New Jersey zombie event this upcoming October 19, 2013 will help the local humane society of Atlantic City. Walk as a zombie on the boardwalk to save the puppies, that just sounds excellent in a sinister way somehow.

The Atlantic City Zombie Walk on the boardwalk will help raise money for a local no-kill animal shelter, while giving participating businesses a boost. We are excited to bring people back to Atlantic City after the busy season ends for a unique and fun event. "
