World Zombie Day is Sunday, October 10, 2010. The unofficial holiday occurs annually during the second weekend in October. The event was started in 2008 by The It’s Alive Show, a local horror/sci-fi television program in Pittsburgh, PA. The It’s Alive Show created World Zombie Day as both a celebration of zombie fandom and a way to raise awareness for world hunger. This year, cities across the globe will play host to zombie walks and collect food and money for area food banks.
