Join a hoard of zombies (over 42,000 last year) as they take over nearly a mile of Bardstown Road for this walk presented by The Devil’s Attic haunted attraction, which is not the original producer of the event (see below). If you survive until the end, there’s a block party with live music and plenty of food and drink. Fans of the dark arts can also check out HopCat for a costume contest and the Louisville Market for Mischief — a “flea market for the spooky and the kooky.”
