    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    The zombies are back in full force this weekend in downtown Atlanta. The Walking Dead convention - Walker Stalker Con - is going on right now through Sunday at AmericasMart.

    Many of the current and former cast members are in attendance, including fan favorite, Melissa McBride.
    McBride portrays the tough character of Carol who has really proven her mettle in the zombie apocalypse.

    Also on hand are other big draws including Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) whose "Bromance" panel was very well attended today, with Reedus, Lincoln and special effects genius, Greg Nicotero, emerging onto the stage from a train car straight out of Terminus.

    It's not just about the panels and autographs - there are plenty of vendors and artists at the convention. There are also parties and concerts from a variety of acts.

    There are also plenty of chance to get in the spirit with fantastic makeup artists on hand who can transform you into a zombie or other horror creature.

    This is only the second year for Walker Stalker in Atlanta and the crowds are continuing to grow. There are plans for conventions across the country this year and next so be sure to check out this unique convention if it comes to a town near you!
