In a few months, zombies will once again make their way through downtown Phoenix.

The annual Phoenix Zombie Walk, a charity event that benefits the Arizona Hemophilia Association, will take place on Saturday, October 28 from 3 p.m. - 11 p.m., said Tori Ericson, development and marketing director for the association.

The event will once again take place within the Warehouse District of downtown Phoenix, she said.

This year marks the second year the Arizona Hemophilia Association will host the event. Prior to that, it was run by Downtown Phoenix Inc., a development group that promotes downtown Phoenix businesses.

In 2016, the event was briefly canceled by Downtown Phoenix Inc. due to logistical and financial issues, but was revived by the Hemophilia Association a few months later.

Ericson said this year's event will be bigger than last year's because the organization has had more time to plan and prepare.

Last year about 12,000 people attended the event. The association is hoping to see 15,000 to 20,000 zombies wandering around the city come October.

Further details would be released as the event draws closer. You can visit for updates and to eventually register.
