Join the award-winning comics and pop culture superstore Brave New World Comics on Saturday, Oct. 23, for the second annual Main Street Zombie March.

The zombie march is a fundraiser and canned food drive to benefit the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry, whose mission is to alleviate hunger throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.

Just like last year, zombie participants are required to register for the event, as well as sign a standard waiver of liability and pick up a copy of the zombie code of conduct.

Registration starts at noon at Hart Park. Students and teachers from Hollywood's Studio Make-Up Academy will be on hand to give zombie participants that just-rolled-out-of-bed-and-ate-some-brains look. In exchange, they ask zombie participants to add to the mountain of canned food and cash donations for the SCV Food Pantry.

In exchange for their registration and donation, each participant will also receive a $5 wooden nickel to spend at Brave New World Comics.

Promptly at dusk, or 6 p.m. for those who are a little less spooky, registered zombie participants will begin their shambling, shuffling, undead journey from Hart Park and head north along the newly renovated Main Street, to Brave New World Comics, at the corner of Lyons Avenue and Chestnut Street.

Along the way, participants are encouraged to be on the look out for zombie friendly businesses in Old Town Newhall.

Last year, witnesses to the pretend carnage lined the streets of Old Town Newhall, and local businesses, such as the Way Station Café, opened their doors to the friendly undead wandering the streets.

After enjoying the slow, undead walk from Hart Park up Main Street, everyone -- undead or not -- is welcome back to Brave New World for a zombie prom.

How the Main Street Zombie March came about is a story in itself, and the staff of Brave New World is excited to have been asked to bring the undead to downtown Newhall once again.

"The success of last year's inaugural event was so overwhelming," said Brave New Proprietress Portlyn. "We were thrilled to donate over a ton of food to the SCV Food Pantry, and are really looking forward to what our zombies will donate this year."
