Thousands of Zombies prowl downtown Fremont, break world record

Zombie-palooza hit downtown Fremont July 3 and broke a Guinness World Record. The event was coined "Red White & Dead" in honor of the Fourth of July.

Thousands gathered by the cinema lot at Fremont studios at North 35th Street and Phinney Avenue North. Some had ripped pants, torn T-shirts, "severed skin" and blood, blood, blood.

They lurked the streets - a three block route - and earned double takes from drivers passing by - some amused, others puzzled.

Organizers registered 5,000 zombies to earn the world record.

Registration began at 6 p.m., and hordes of zombies continued stumbling in well after 8 p.m. The dance steps to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" were taught at 8:30 p.m. as a tip of the hat to the late pop super-star.
