Wayne State University student volunteers got into the Halloween spirit Thursday by joining the Zombie Parade organized by the Hilberry Theatre and The College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts. Theater students fell into character and invited Detroiters to put on makeup courtesy of the Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance and joing the “Walking Dead” parade with the marching band as they played and danced to a rendition of “Thriller”. After the parade zombies marched to Lefty’s Lounge for free pizza.
