The streets of Lismore will be crawling with zombies in search of brains tomorrow.

Organisers of the first annual, all inclusive, zombie walk, are calling on Lismore residents to get their zombie on as part of a fundraiser for mental health services in the city.

The action starts at the North Coast Tafe in Keen Street at 3pm, with the actual zombie walk kicking off at 5pm.

A highlight will be a flash-mob performance to the tune Thriller.

And to make sure the zombies have all the right moves, dance rehearsals are taking place today at the Alstonville Dance Studio in Park Avenue from 5.30pm to 7pm, and tomorrow at Lismore TAFE from 3.30pm.

Registration for the wallk is $5 and the money will be going towards Mental Health Month and supporting Haven NR, a group run by youth, for youth.

Registration is avaliable at the Ability Links stall at North Coast Tafe on the day.
