Zombie Walk scares up funds for the Orion Lighted Parade

The sixth annual Zombie Walk on Saturday raised more than $500 to donate to the Orion Lighted Parade Group to help cover the costs of the Lighted Christmas Parade on Dec. 7.

Lloyd and Kathy Coe of Ed’s Broadway Gifts & Costumes began the Zombie Walk as a way to celebrate Lloyd’s birthday. Since it’s inception, the Zombie Walk has grown each year and had a record number of attendees this year, the Coe’s said.

“It was the best one yet. We had around 60 people. We even had kids in it,” Lloyd said, adding that the Zombies shuffled through downtown Lake Orion visiting American Legion Post 233, Lockhart’s BBQ, Fork n’ Pint, Valentino’s, Cookies & Cream, Wine Social and Sarah’s Bath Boutique.

“Sheriff” Joan Sheridan of Heritage Spinning and Weaving kept the zombies in line during the walk, which also included a Poker Run fundraiser.

“I thought it was hugely successful. People I saw on the streets were laughing and having a good time with the zombies,” said Bill Kokenos, a member of the Orion Lighted Parade Group who helped with the Zombie Walk and Poker Run.
