The annual "Zombie Pub Crawl" in Downtown Pittsfield officially has its 2018 date in preparation for Halloween.

According to a post on social media, the ninth annual event will take place on Oct. 20. The event will kick off at 5 p.m. with a make-up station and will last throughout the night while you check out the best Downtown Pittsfield has to offer. People are encouraged to wear their best "Zombie Hunter Costumes".

The list of places the crawl will hit has yet to be announced, but from past years, most places in the area will be visited by pub crawling zombies.

Also announced this year will be a "fun fundraising aspect". Although it wasn't elaborated on within the event announcement, a post from last week states that this year's event will raise money for the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter.

More information will be announced in the coming weeks. You can also check out the official Facebook page for the event right here.
