Zombies march in Mexico City
Nearly 10,000 zombies march in Mexico City in a bid to smash New Jersey’s record. Thousands of self-proclaimed ‘undead’ gathered in the historic centre of Mexico City for a ‘Zombie Walk’ that organizers hope sets a world record. The 9,860 registered participants were dressed in rags and ghoulish makeup to look bloody and decaying. Organizer Pablo Guisa said the fifth annual event in the Mexico capital was meant to celebrate diversity and human rights, the Associated Press reports.
The participants also collected donations for a local food bank.
Cities around the world hold zombie walks, and Guinness World Records currently recognizes Asbury Park, New Jersey, as the record holder.
They had 4,093 participants on October 30, 2010.
A group in Brisbane, Australia, has applied for the record, claiming it massed 8,000 zombies last month.
