LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The undead will be replacing tourists and dudes dressed as Spider-Man on Hollywood Blvd. tomorrow (Apr. 24).

Zombies are taking to the streets to limp and moan for two miles to raise money for local charities in the “SoCal Zombie Walk.”

This isn’t the first time around the block for Walk creator Anthony Dalbis, who was inspired to start the events after playing an extra on an episode of CSI: New York that centered on a Zombie Walk murder.

He encourages zombies from all walks of life to rise for the occasion. In the past, people dressed as Cher and Lady Gaga zombies have participated.

Although most of the zombies he meets are alive, he says the real undead can be easily spotted because “their stench is a dead giveaway.”

Should anyone encounter a real zombie while walking, he says it’s best to “aim for their head.”
