New zombie walk world record set in Grand Rapids, MI last night.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A world record number of zombies came to Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids Thursday night.

An estimated 2,000 people dressed up in their best ghoulish costume and broke the mark for largest zombie walk.

They also donated 8,000 cans of food for the Second Harvest Gleaners Food Bank of West Michigan – 5,000 by participants and 3,000 by Meijer stores.

Organizer Rob Bliss spread the word with the help of Facebook.com.

The old record – 1,028 zombies – was set last year at the Monroeville Mall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This is pretty sweet.  From my understanding, the cops never blocked off the streets, so ghouls were marauding through regular traffic.
