For the fifth year running the historic streets of Prague have been awash with Zombies, or at least zombie aficionados dressed and painted to look like cast-offs from 'The Walking Dead
' or from a George A. Romero
For this year's event several hundred people took part (Radio Prague
reports 762 participants). The zombie look-a-likes were drawn from across the Czech republic and from throughout Europe. The most popular look was white face pain, mock scars, and a splattering of fake blood.
As the zombies lurched down the cobbled streets they were followed by a crowd of local residents and tourists. The organized event
took place on Saturday May 5 for two-and-half hours in the afternoon.
