Zombies plan to overrun downtown Issaquah again, as a Halloween tradition brings together a “Thriller” flash mob of undead creatures.
Organizers expect a horde of zombies to participate in the Oct. 27 event at the Issaquah Library. The flash mob is scheduled to occur after the zombies inch down Front Street North.
“The Zombie Walk started as a fun thing with friends and neighbors last year and grew in popularity,” Tom Gotuzzo, event organizer and DownTown Issaquah Association board member, said in a statement. “Zombies are slow, they moan and groan but they don’t grab or bite. They come in all sizes and many of them are small children.”
Last October, about 60 zombies moaned and groaned down Front Street North to the library, menacing vehicles and passers-by.
“We’re starting the walk while it’s still light because the cars in traffic went wild honking at us last year and the kids loved it,” Gotuzzo added.
Meanwhile, zombies plan to gather in the Issaquah Highlands for more “Thriller” flash mobs at noon and 4 p.m.
