Thanks to Third Planet for sponsoring the Lawrence Zombie Walk! And as some of you may know, the KU Homecoming Parade was scheduled on Mass Street an hour before the zombie walk because the didn't realize our event was going on. Everyone has met up and compared timelines and plans, the only thing that will change is moving our group a bit to give the parade space to marshal. And here's a link to the LJ World article mentioning us!
