The undead wriggled down Lancaster Boulevard on Friday night during a Zombie Walk put on by Palm-Caster Paranormal Research Society.
The local group of supernatural investigators raised funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Halfway to Home Dog Rescue.
Kirsten Kline of Lancaster spent an hour and a half on her elaborate zombie make-up.
“I love to do anything that has to do with Halloween,” said Kline. “Anything that you can dress up, and it actually makes an effect and scares people, that’s awesome.”
The undead, including a seven-foot-tall zombie clown, chased onlookers through Downtown Lancaster during the mile-long walk between 10th Street West and Sierra Highway.
