Shreveport Zombie Walk starts today | Arts & Culture
The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana celebrates its 5th annual Shreveport Zombie walk today.
The walk will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Festival Plaza's west end in downtown Shreveport.
The Walk gives attendees a fun, unique experience involving the spirit of community involvement and the pop culture phenomenon known as the “walking dead” - aka zombies. This family-friendly event charges no admission, and only asks that attendees come dressed in their finest zombie garb, bearing donations of non-perishable food items.
Since 2008, the Shreveport Zombie Walk has been on a mission to raise awareness of the hunger issues in our area and to raise non-perishable food for the Food Bank of NWLA.
The entertainment line-up includes: a live performance from Shreveport’s very own band The Moulin Dudes Dead, featuring a dance performance from Bon Temps Burlesque; spooky-themed mixes of music by DJ Charlie Whiskey and skits from popular zombie films performed by the Caddo Magnet High Drama Club. Guest speakers will include noted horror authors Joe McKinney and Rhiannon Frater. Both will also be available to autograph and sell copies of their books for fans.
