BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A one-of-a-kind event in Melbourne over the weekend chased bad guys from the streets and brought a new band of crime-fighting crusaders to the Harbor City.

Well, sort of.

At 4 p.m. Saturday a unique idea to raise money for the Brevard Aiding Shelter Animals Project gathered participants dressed up in colorful costumes for a good cause.

The first-ever Superhero and Villains Walk drew a large crowd of adults, kids and leashed dogs in a parade through downtown Melbourne.

The event was free, but donations were accepted from both superheroes and villains alike.

The event was a spin-off from the last fall’s Zombie Walk through Melbourne and was sponsored in conjunction with Famous Faces and Funnies of Melbourne.

Participants were given a choice to dress up as a superhero or a villain, whatever path – good or evil – that they wanted to follow.

Brevard Aiding Shelter Animals Project is a non-profit organization with one mission to generate resources to enhance Brevard County animal shelters.

Its goals include development of low-cost or no-cost spay and neuter programs, make shelter improvements, to increase shelter adoptions and to educate the community about all aspects of proper pet care.
