On Assignment | Zombie Bash 2011 | 225
In early October, I had the pleasure of attending the Zombie Bash in downtown Baton Rouge, hosted by TJ Ribs and Of Moving Colors.
Unsure what to expect but hoping for the best, I arrived at the Friday night race to find numerous people dressed as zombies, as well as a local hair studio zombie-fying anyone and everyone else before the start of the 5K. (They even offered to zombie-fy me!)

And after the 5K, the group of zombies danced to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Needless to say, it was fantastic, and the images turned out better than I could have ever hoped.
