Louisville Zombie Walk brings life to Bardstown Road businesses

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More than 40,000 zombies will take over Bardstown Road on Saturday.

This is the 15th year for the event that sees thousands walk the streets in the Highlands. Expect live bands, food vendors, street performers, a zombie gaming area and even a zombie car show.

While you won't be able to drive in the area of Bardstown Road, some restaurants are thrilled to have the event every year.

"For us, it's a family event," said Ramsi Kamar, the owners of Ramsi's Cafe On The World. "You know, my family lives above the restaurant. We love it. We wait for it every year. It's just been part of our lives ... for a long, long time, every since we've been here."
