Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The undead took over Louisville on Saturday.

Thousands of zombie-themed walkers took to Bardstown Road in the Highlands for the 11th annual Zombie Walk.

Everyone was decked out in their fiercest and deadliest disguises, all for an event that began as a celebration of two friends' birthdays.

The zombie attack started in 2005 as a way for two friends to celebrate their Aug. 29 birthday. Since then it has continued to grow, with thousands of zombies joining the party each year. 

The event causes a bit of chaos in the neighborhood each Aug. 29, as Bardstown Road shuts down from Eastern Parkway to Highland Avenue.
