In the not so distant future, the zombie horde will invade Fresno. The only way to fight is off is with ... Nerf guns.

That’s the essential pitch of Zombies - Nerf Attack, an interactive zombie apocalypse simulation that plays publicity for the film "Zombies," and coincides with National Zombie Day, Saturday, Oct. 1. That’s not an official observation, by any means.

Fresno will join dozens of cities for a two-hour game of humans vs. the undead. Participants play in 20-minute rounds, both as human survivors and as part of the zombie horde – tracked by a handy phone app and RFID bracelet/bib. The national event is being billed as the “World’s Largest Zombie Event and Nerf War,” which organizers hope to have that verified by The Guiness Book Of World Records.

Registration for the attack is $60 if paid before July 31. The cost is $70 until Sept. 1 and $80 before Sept. 16 and includes a t-shirt, Nerf gun, phone app and RFID bracelet, protective eye wear (cool zombie shades) and a tickets to see “Zombies.”

The film opens Friday, September 30.
