Calling all zombies!
The annual Zombie Walk is hitting downtown Courtenay on Saturday, Oct. 28. Meet at Games and Grounds Coffee House at 331 Fourth St. at 4:30 p.m. and we’ll shamble around the downtown core. Prizes for Best Zombie will be given out at the end of the walk, in three age categories: up to 12 years, 13 – 17 years, and 28-plus.
Zombie Walk planner and owner of Games and Grounds Coffee House, Alex Greenwood, explains the earlier date this year.
“In previous years the Zombie Walk has accompanied the Halloween festivities held in Courtenay’s downtown core and at the Lewis Centre [on Oct. 31], but due to feedback we’ve decided to make it on a Saturday to encourage more attendance for those zombies that attend school or work Monday through Friday. We’re looking forward to a great turnout this year.”
