A fun night in the Twin Cities for about 100 friends eight years ago has turned into a zombie epidemic.
KARE 11 reported that an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people were expected to dress up as "the walking dead" Saturday and fill Midway Stadium in St. Paul to see rapper DMX as part of Zombie Pub Crawl VIII.
In Minneapolis, zombies were expected to lumber over to the Cabooze to see the Gin Blossoms.
About 30,000 people were expected to participate in the events in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The event, not-coincidentally, comes a day before the hit television show "The Walking Dead" returns on cable's AMC for its third season.
