The zombie apocalypse is coming to Issaquah — again.
Just in time for Halloween, a horde of zombies will shamble and shuffle through our community Oct. 29, 2016, for the annual Downtown Zombie Walk.
The living and undead of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate in the free community event.
The fun starts at the historic Hailstone Feed Store, 232 Front St. N.
The official Zombie Walk starts at 4:30 p.m. as zombies walk down Front Street North, attracting the attention of motorists, diners and passers-by.
Then, at 5 p.m., a choreographed "Thriller" and "Time Warp" zombie dance takes over the steps at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.
The annual Downtown Zombie Walk is sponsored by the Downtown Issaquah Association, The Studio, Issaquah Brewhouse and Vinyl Radio.
