The Louisville Zombie Walk to Unleash a Horde of 40,000 Walkers on Saturday, Aug. 27th!

Louisville Zombie Walk

When there’s no more room in The Devil’s Attic, the dead will walk the streets of Louisville.

The gates of Hell must be bursting at the seams because it seems every year in late August more flesh eating zombies get loose from their rotting graves to carve a path of apocalyptic carnage through the Highlands in Louisville, KY.

This year promises to be the very biggest siege of the living dead this city has ever seen under the new stewardship of Satan himself! You read that right. The Prince of Darkness and the crew of The Devil’s Attic, one of Louisville’s scariest seasonal haunted attractions located on West Hill Street, have taken over ownership of the largest annual zombie walk in the United States.

The brain munching horde was estimated at 35,000 in 2015 and the changing of the event night to Saturday night has city officials estimating a turnout closer to 40,000 this year.

The hunger for this event can not be stopped, and the Louisville Zombie Walk has become much bigger than anyone ever anticipated. It now marks the official start of the Halloween season in this town.

“This is a FREE community event,” says The Devil’s Attic owner, Jason Besemann, “but I ask that for the price of admission that everybody who comes out to please dress up like a zombie or something zombie related.”

This year’s Louisville Zombie Walk officially starts on SATURDAY, AUGUST 27 at 8:29 PM at the corner of EASTERN PARKWAY and BARDSTOWN ROAD. The pre-party zone will be set up in the parking lot at Mid City Mall where haunt review website, The Scare Factor, will be letting Satan climb atop their black haunt tour bus and give the official commands that will kick off the apocalypse. Think air raid siren!
