The undead will roam the streets of downtown Lafayette tonight for Zombie Walk 2013.

The free event, coordinated by the Lafayette Science Museum, features the ghoulish and undead overrunning walking through downtown. The public is encouraged to watch in horror or amusement!

The rules of the walk are given during an event called "The Lurch" which takes place at 4:30 Saturday afternoon at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette, where the Zombie Walk begins and ends.

Following the walk, there will be a costume contest and party featuring live music from Yakk and Bearfighter. Food and beverages will also be available.

Also open this weekend for the final time this season is the Museum of Fear. One walk through promises "You'll never be the same!" Scare at your own risk.

All proceeds from the Museum of Fear benefit the Lafayette Science Museum.
