WHAT WE SEE: They're after your brains! (Just kidding...)
A group of young Boiseans with an affinity for the zombie genre and access to plenty of food coloring, corn syrup, and chocolate sauce staggered through Downtown Boise on March 22.

The zombie walk was organized with the help of a MySpace.com group which has 149 members, mostly Treasure Valley residents. If you're interested in future zombie walks, that is the place to start.

The reactions the zombies received as they groaned and limped their way from the campus of Boise State University through Downtown varied greatly. Children hid behind their parent's legs, the pace quickened for Greenbelt walkers, drivers rolled their windows up, and shrieking, movie-bound ****agers snapped pictures.

One zombie had to reassure an older gentlemen that she was "just kidding" after she approached him with her arms outstretched and "bloody" mouth agape.

The only rules of the walk were that the zombies couldn't destroy anything, were not supposed to touch any non-participants, and they had to use the crosswalks.

Wendy Fox, one of the unofficial organizers of the walk, said she enjoys the decentralized, democratic nature of the event and the creativity it allows. She considers zombie walks a "kind of non-permanent moving street art."

"In a town like Boise, people need to be allowed to have more self-expression," Fox said.[img][/img]
"We take Pete's car, we drive over to mum's, we go in, take care of Phillip - "I'm so sorry Phillip". - then we grab mum, we go over to Liz's place, hole up, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over."
