Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean that you want to be alone. Bask in the fetid stench of your fellow corpses at the 12th annual Richmond Zombie Walk taking place Saturday, Oct. 29, at 2:30 p.m. in Carytown. The putrid procession is a real crowd pleaser for the living and the dead, with each side taking to the historic shopping district to see how the other half lives — and dies. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. richmondzombiewalk.com. If you need more time with the deceased, the 11th annual Halloween Parade gathers spirits Monday, Oct. 31, in Monroe Park. The event is held by the homegrown puppeteers in the All the Saints Theater Company and attendees are encouraged to take part in the monstrous musical mingle by bringing their own instruments and marionette creations. Open to ghouls and goblins of all ages, the masses will gather at 7 p.m.
