‘Walking Dead’ fans meet for convention in Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — Fans of the
hit cable television show “The Walking Dead” congregated in downtown
Atlanta this weekend for a convention focused on the AMC series.

The
convention, named “Walker Stalker Con,” was expected to draw about
10,000 people to the Atlanta Convention Center over the weekend.

Eric
Nordhoff and James Frazier, also known as the “Walker Stalkers,”
created the convention after a road trip they made last fall from
Nashville, Tenn., to Georgia to see the show being filmed.

Fans
were treated to sessions with makeup artists to look like zombies during
the convention, and the event featured appearances by some of the
actors from the show.
