Dover Zombie Walk Oct. 27

The Dover Zombie Walk celebrates 13 years of shambling through the streets of the Garrison City this year. Started in 2006, long before "The Walking Dead" was a TV hit and America had a case of (non-contagious, non-terrifying) zombie fever, The Dover Zombie Walk has been leading a family-friendly parade of ghouls through downtown Dover each Halloween season. The walk returns this year on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. As always, zombies of all ages will gather at the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, 550 Central Ave. The undead horde will march through town (while obeying all traffic rules, of course), and end at Adelle's Coffeehouse, at 3 Hale St., where they'll feast on Jell-O brains and hold a creepy costume contest. Prizes for best costumes for kids and adults. The Dover Zombie Walk takes place rain or shine. Visit for more info.
