Zombie Walk Canceled
The walking dead will not be turning heads in downtown Asheville this year. That's because the organizers of Zombie Walk have canceled their annual event.
This is the fifth festival in the city to be called off recently. ActionFest, LAAFF, Bele Chere and Goombay have also been canceled. In each case, lack of funding was to blame.
Organizers say the Zombie Walk was canceled because of a lack of sponsorship. The event can cost thousands to put on because of permits and other expenses.
Organizers hope to bring it back next year.
