(WMC-TV) - If you're downtown enjoying the start of a three day weekend do not be alarmed if you find yourself in the zombie scene of Michael Jackson's Thriller video. Zombies will invade the downtown area tonight.

Memphis Zombie Massacre is an organization that consists of community activists and horror enthusiasts. According to the group's website, the goal of this event is to give back to the city by enhancing the lives and experiences of Mid-Southerners.

This is the 6th annual zombie invasion and this organization is not only parading the city but also feeding the city. Zombie participants will have the opportunity to donate to the Mid-South Food Bank. They are accepting non-perishable items as well as money donations.

The invasion of zombies will start tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the corner of South Main and G. E Patterson and it will end on the corner of Beale and Fourth Street. While organizers suggest you show up zombie ready, if you need assistance with your attire, there will be volunteers there to help.
