On August 17, 2013, the infection spreads again as hordes of the undead roam the streets of Vancouver in search of brains. The annual Zombie Walk has been going on for years, getting larger every year.
As always, it seems to catch locals and tourists off guard.
PLEASE NOTE – DO NOT VANDALIZE ANYTHING!
Though the temptation is great, please do NOT smear blood, brains or anything else on any businesses, buses, automobiles or any other public or private property as this is VANDALISM and the police will be ticketing and dealing with vandals appropriately. The police have been very good at past Zombie Walks, so please Zombie Walk with your utmost undead abandon, but don’t do anything careless which could jeapordize everyone’s fun and possibly shut down future Zombie Walks.
HAM IT UP FOR THE CAMERAS!
There are always TONS of people taking photos and videos and we absolutely love all the people who come down to document the Zombie outbreak. Make sure to put on your best Zombie face for any and all cameras around, but also remember to be respectful of people’s equipment!
RESPECT and OBEY THE POLICE!
The police are there to make sure the Zombie Walkers and Vancouver street traffic do not interfere with or damage each other, so they must be respected and obeyed at all times. Plus, they have the authority to arrest or ticket anyone doing anything illegal, like defacing public property, so behave! Respect the little ones, as well!
Though we big kids all see the fun in it, small children may not and if you see any children reacting fearfully, please do not add to their distress. Just move on and let their parents explain. Do NOT accidentally be the douche who gives them nightmares for a week by leering in their face! However, if they’re into it, they’re fair game for fun, like ALL of the living!
SPREAD THE WORD / INFECT OTHERS / INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!
Date: August 17, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (assemble around 3 p.m.)
Venue: Starts at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the walking dead then proceed to roam the streets of downtown. The zombie infestation travels up Robson towards Denman Street. At Denman it makes a left and continues to English Bay and ends at the laughing men statues.
