About Zombie Walk
Zombie Walk Palm Springs is the brainchild of local chef Chad Gardner and Rolando “Roly” Paz, both Zombie enthusiasts who sought to bring Palm Springs its first Zombie Walk in 2011. The idea of a Zombie Walk Palm Springs was so well received that Gardner and Paz decided to “do good” and make the event a benefit for local charity, SafeHouse of the Desert. Now in its third year, Zombie Walk Palm Springs is held annually during the Palm Springs VillageFest Halloween Spooktacular.
