Zombies have been gaining steady popularity over the last decade. Zombie marches also referred to as zombie walks, zombie shuffles, zombie crawls and zombie hordes are the ideal way for folks to express their admiration for the undead. The first zombie walk was held in Sacramento, California in 2001 in order to promote a local film festival. The idea quickly gained traction, in 2003 the first just for fun walk happened in Toronto, Ontario. By the mid 2000s the undead started walking to raise awareness about world hunger throughout the United States, these are often called hunger marches. Now, it has become a localized annual tradition with almost every large metropolitan area in North America hosting some form of march. Participation in the marches can range from less than a hundred marchers to several thousand; encouraging event organizers to compete with each other to set the highest attendance record. Zombie gatherings are not limited to only Halloween, many are held throughout the year.
