The ‘Zombie Walk' has become an annual tradition across the nation, and Hastings residents joined in on the craze for their first ‘Zombie Walk.'
Hastings Downtown Center Association director, Jessi Hoeft, said, "This is the first annual, but I have a feeling it won't be the last."
The group had people of all ages limping and moaning like the dead, but aside from having fun with their family and friends, the zombies were also helping a cause.
Hoeft said "Traditionally zombie walks are a social awareness issue, and because October is cancer awareness we've set out a donation tin asking for donations for the American Cancer Society."
Sporting the ripped clothes and fake blood for 10 blocks took one hour.
"We weren't exactly sure what we were going to get but we got an amazing crowd, even on this chilly night," said Hoeft.
Hoeft estimates about 300 walked the streets of Hastings in zombie costumes.
