BILLINGS - While temperatures were less than ideal, fans of the fictional undead joined at Pioneer Park to celebrate the approaching Halloween season, but more importantly, to raise money for the charity Scares That Care.
"Scares That Care" is a nation-wide, non-profit organization that helps raise money for sick children. To date, more than $10,000 has been raised through various events, all of which use the fan base of horror entertainment and Halloween.
The day long event features live performances, contests, and celebrities, including actor Timothy Patrick Quill and professional makeup artist and Emmy winner Andy Schoneberg.
While celebrities signed autographs, there was no shortage of one-of-a-kind entertainment usually reserved for the strip in Vegas. Eric the Excellent swallowed swords and wrapped his lips around flames while belly dancers danced to classic Halloween tunes.
The annual Zombie Carnival continues throughout the evening until 10 p.m.
