Local zombies are creeping into the streets.

Though Philadelphia would actually be a terrible place to experience a real zombie apocalypse, it sure is full of people who love to be fake zombies. Philly Zombie Crawl, the bar crawl for the undead, returns to South Street on Easter Sunday, April 5.

Now in its 10th year, the crawl so far includes Tattoeed Mom, Manny Brown's, 2nd State Lounge, Copabanana and The Legendary Dobbs. The bars will welcome zombies, have drink specials and provide a fun atmosphere for the event. Most will also host makeup artists who will turn you into a zombie for just $10.

New this year, those under 21 can join in on the fun with the Philly Zombie Crawl Parade. Starting at Starr Garden, the zombies will shuffle down to South Street and across to 3rd Street. Prizes will be given to the best zombie packs (of four or more of the undead under one unifying theme) at the end of the parade before the bar crawl kicks off.
