Zombies walk the streets of downtown Rapid City

Posted:

Main street square was over run by the walking dead Sunday but no it isn't the zombie apocalypse, it was the Rapid City Zombie Walk. The Main Street Square was over taken by the undead.

The Zombie Dolls Roller derby team took over the planning this year and hosted the event which began in Main Street Square. Participants paraded throughout downtown showing how scary they could be.

There was also a costume contest. The Zombie Dolls had a chance to choose the best couple, scariest, funniest and most disgusting costumes.

April Bowman who dressed in her zombie best says she was looking forward to spending the day with her family. "It sounded like a lot of fun, a fun family activity, it's a nice day to get out, enjoy with the kids"  

The Zombie Walk was not just for fun, the Zombie Dolls are using this walk to launch their own fundraising event. Sabrina Lacrois also known as Mombie of the Zombie Dolls says "we are actually using this event to launch our fundraising campaign which is called 'Hoards for Herds', we are going to be flocking businesses and people's homes with live zombies rather than pink flamingoes"  

The proceeds of the "Hoards for Herds" event will go to the rancher relief fund.
