PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Ghosts, ghouls, and many other monsters came out Sunday morning for the Monster Dash 5k and Kids Monster Dash in downtown Providence.

The course takes costume-clad participants through RIPTA’s historic East Side bus tunnel, overtaken by zombies!

The race started and finished on South Water Street.

Seven RIPTA bus routes around Providence were detoured until noontime to accommodate the 5k road race.

Proceeds from the Monster Dash 5k go to the Project Undercover charity, which provides clothing, toiletries, and other necessities to Rhode Island children living in poverty.
