If you see a group of zombies walking (shuffling?) down Oneonta NY's Main Street this Saturday you don't need to be alarmed!It's not the long-awaited zombie apocalypse, it's the 8th Annual  Oneonta Zombie Walk.  Zombie enthusiasts this one's for you!  You can either join the creeping ghouls or watch in trepidation as the scary crowd moves down Main Street to end up at Foothills Performing Arts Center where Author-Con Parahorror festival is going on.

The best part is, the zombies are walking for a good cause and have been collecting donations for Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless dogs and cats.  You can still donate any of the items listed below and bring them to the "collection coffin" (pictured below) located right outside the Secret Comix Cave at 3200 Chestnut Street in Oneonta before the event.
