LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Dozens of the undead took to the streets of Lewiston and Auburn, not to trick-or-treat, but to have some fun and raise money for a good cause.
"People love zombies," stated Ronald S. Lawlor, Jr. "It is just a good way to get people together, because obviously people come together for common interests and this is also fun, and there is really not too much to do on Halloween around here other than your typical trick-or-treating or partying if you are a party person."
Lawlor, and his friend Stephan Bernard, are the brains behind the Lewiston Zombie Walk, which has grown each year since it started back in 2008.
"Zombie walks in general, they have all had different messages for what they stand for," explained Bernard. "It is generally the basis for world hunger is usually the outcry of a zombie walk. Kind of punny I guess."
This year about 30 people took part, while raising money for the New Auburn Boys and Girls Club. They'd like to see the event grow even bigger and help more kids in their community.
