Update April 22, 2012: After some confusion regarding permits and the city of Myrtle Beach, the 5th Annual Myrtle Beach Zombie Walk managed to raise over $2,000 for Project Lighthouse.
Participants gathered all day yesterday, Saturday, April 21st at The Sound Hole in Myrtle Beach to get 'Zombified" but fear of actually not being able to go through with the walk was in the air. After the city of Myrtle Beach said the organization needed a parade permit, organizers feared they would have to cancel the actual walk. But thankfully, they were given the 'go ahead' and were able to do the walk as long as they stayed on the sidewalks and not blocked any streets.
First Report April 13th, 2012: Since it is Friday the 13th, there is no better day to announce the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse in Myrtle Beach.
