Like a scene out of the cult classic, “Night of the Living Dead,” up to 300 people, all made up to look like zombies, dragged themselves through the streets of Davenport last year, intersecting with the traditional Halloween Parade. And zombie fans rejoice!

The spooky people will be back again this year! The creator of all this fun and foolishness is Davenport artist Alexander Iaccarino. He says it’s really just a big art project. Last year’s appearance of zombies at the parade was a closely-kept secret. This year, they’ve come out of the coffin, so to speak. They’ll be marching — at least to the extent that zombies march — on Sunday night at 7.
