Denver Zombie Crawl 2011 doubled previous local total, sets new record (PHOTOS)

Update: Denver Zombie Crawl frontman Danny Newman's zeroing in on a count for this past weekend's spectacle, and the total looks to be between 14,000 and 16,000 participants and spectators. That crushes the Zombie Crawl record set in Seattle earlier this year and is around double last year's local number. And that's fine by the Downtown Denver Partnership, which sings the event's praises.
