The Arts Council of Sault Ste. Marie & District and the Soup Kitchen Community Centre invite you to crawl, shamble, drag, lurch and walk with your fellow zombies and resistance in the Sault’s downtown streets (Bay St, Brock St, Queen St. E, and Pim St.) on Saturday, October 25, 2014.
“The Zombie Carnival will start at 2:00 p.m. with returning favourites including Perfectly Painted Faces to make you gory and gruesome,” says Janna Goulay-Pond, one of Zombie Walk Coordinators. “There will also be some brains for eating, which taste an awful lot like fried foods and baked goods, and zombie art and info booths.”
The afternoon will also include games, such as Limb Toss and Fishin’ for Fingers which participants can play for free. Haunting music to wake the undead will also be playing throughout the afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
At 5:00p.m. Zombies and resistance will be freed from the Canadian Bushplane Centre and will take to the streets for the formal walk. From 6:00p.m. to 7:00p.m., Prizes will be given out at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre. (with one amazing prize from Cirque de Solei)
“This year, we are still giving prizes for the Best Zombie and Resistance child and adult categories, but our judges will also be keeping their eyes peeled for the most creative costumes as well. We’ve seen some great ones in the past and are looking forward to what you come up with this year,” says Goulay-Pond.
“We want to thank the Busplane Heritage Centre for their involvement for the 2nd year, and we learned from last year and shortened the time and the distance for the walk. We want people to remember safety first, stay on the sidewalk or walkways and we are pleased that Sault College has provided students to assist with our crowd control from their Police Foundations Program” says Lisa Vezeau-Allen, Executive Director of the Arts Council.
To enter the zombie-infested building and join the walk, resistance and zombies 13 and over must provide $2 plus a canned good for the Soup Kitchen Community Centre and terrors 12 and under are only required to give a canned good. To keep updated, visit http://www.soozombiewalk.org/
