This Friday night, don't be surprised if you see hundreds of undead roaming the streets of downtown Binghamton. A plethora of people dressed in ghoulish garb and elaborately scary makeup will come out of the darkness of the night to celebrate First Friday and the upcoming Halloween holiday with the Binghamton Zombie Art Walk.

Want to participate? Great, because the Zombie Walk is free and everyone is invited to join in! All you need to do to participate is to dress up in your best zombie type clothing and makeup and be at the courtyard of the Metro Center on Court Street in downtown Binghamton no later than 7 p.m. this Friday, October 6th.  From the Metro Center, you'll shuffle through downtown Binghamton drawing attention from everyone.

While the Binghamton Zombie Art Walk is free and open to everyone, there are some very important rules to remember:

-Zombies don't talk and neither should you.
-Zombies don't take photos with cell phones, so you shouldn't either.
-No smiling! And, no interacting with people who are clearly trying to avoid you.
-No touching of any vehicles, whether they're moving or not.
-No drinking or smoking while participating. If you're drunk, this isn't the walk for you.
-Be respectful and clean up after yourself.
-Follow all traffic laws and walk only on sidewalks and cross only at intersections.
