Dover Zombie Walk returns for a ninth year of shambling good times. Zombies of all ages are welcome to gather at the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, 550 Central Ave., on Saturday, Oct. 25, at 2 p.m.
The undead horde will march through downtown Dover (while obeying all traffic rules, of course), and end at Adelle’s Coffeehouse, at 3 Hale St., where they’ll feast on Jell-O brains and hold a creepy costume contest. Prizes for best costumes for kids and adults.

"Z Nation” will live on.
The zombie TV series filmed and produced in Spokane will be picked up for a second season, Syfy and North by Northwest Productions announced on Monday.
Rich Cowan, co-founder of North by Northwest, called the decision great news.
“We’re showing the TV and film industry that we can deliver network episodic television directly out of Spokane,” he said. “We’re thrilled and so happy for the crew.”
The 13-episode series, which just aired episode six Friday night, created the equivalent of about 200 full-time jobs in the first season and employed hundreds of Spokane-area residents cast as extras, mostly zombies. In addition to filming, all production work is being done in Spokane.
Cowan said it was notable that the second season was announced so quickly.
“We just aired episode six,” he said. “They pulled the trigger because the ratings have been higher than anticipated.”
So far this season, “Z Nation” has been Syfy’s third-highest-rated scripted show, behind “Dominion” and “Defiance,” with an average of 1.4 million viewers.
Cowan could not say yet if season two will be filmed in Eastern Washington, pending contract negotiations.
Vannen joined forces with Skybound last year to release "Horde", a limited edition The Walking Dead watch featuring glow-in-the dark detail and artwork by Charlie Adlard. It was a huge success at San Diego Comic-Con, but was never available in stores.
To celebrate the start of Season 5 of The Walking Dead on AMC, we’re releasing "Horde II". This special edition watch features the same sinister artwork as the original "Horde" minus the glow-in-the-dark detail and hand-numbered packaging. "Horde II" is available now for the fan-friendly price of $60.
Downtown historic Port Clinton will welcome zombies from all shuffles of undead on Saturday, October 25, from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. for the third annual Zombie Pub Crawl and Ball presented by Heidelberg Distributing.
