The Swamp is our theme-featured area and start of the Zombiwalk at 6 pm, located on Hendry Street between Bay and Edwards near the newly renovated water feature. Eight voodoo nightmare inspired sculptures will be on display for a silent auction provided by the students of Cypress Lake high school and original cast extra, Tim Smith who appeared in George Romero’s Day of the Dead filmed in our own beautiful downtown Fort Myers.
