What started with about 150 people tromping bar to bar in zombie makeup has spread into an annual spectacle of fake blood and brains that now spans Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Organizers behind the Zombie Pub Crawl say they've already sold about 18,500 tickets. They're providing buses to cart the undead between Minneapolis' West Bank and Lowertown in St. Paul.

The Star Tribune has some highlights, including performances by Andrew W.K. (in St. Paul) and 2 Live Crew (Minneapolis). Organizers say they hope W.K.'s performance will rally enough of the undead to break the Guinness Book of World Records for largest zombie gathering.

The horde gathers 4 p.m. Saturday.

How loud can the walking dead get? At least a few neighbors of Midway Stadium in St. Paul fear revelers at the planned Zombie Pub Crawl VIII on Oct. 13 could get pretty noisy. Organizers are even hoping that it could qualify for a world record gathering of zombies. But the city has granted a noise variance for the 2-to-midnight event, the Pioneer Press reports.
