Kids these days… are awesome. And so are their Zombie Walk costumes.
On Saturday, Oct. 24, Zombie Walk 7 will attract thousands of the living dead to Heritage & Science Park — including little zombies, dressed to the (ripped) t in their Zombie Walk best.
The day-long event will feature tons of kid-friendly activities, including the Little Zombie Zone and the Goodwill Arizona Zombification Zone — where for a donation of $5 or five non-perishable food items to St. Mary’s Food Bank you get zombie make-up, hair and clothes.
In fact, these kids’ costumes are so awesome, we had to give them their very own Little Zombie Costume Contest, which starts at 4:30 p.m. for those 12 and under.
Take a look at some of the creative costumes worn to last year’s Zombie Walk 6. They’re to die for.

Zombie make-up is not required! This little tyke wore her calavera mask and dress for Dia de los Muertos.
