Zombie hordes happen

October 22, 2013

In 2009, citizens dining in downtown Issaquah spotted a handful of zombies shambling down Front Street. Since then, the group founded by Tom Gotuzzo has grown into a horde and added a few dance moves to the annual event.

The fourth annual Zombie Walk returns to Issaquah from 2:30-5:30 p.m. Oct. 26. Karen Donovan, Downtown Issaquah Association executive director, said all ages of creepers are invited to join the horde.

Become a member of the zombie horde by meeting at the Hailstone Feed Store, 232 Front St. N. Come already dressed or get help being made up and join in on a practice run through of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance moves.
