InCON Family Gaming Convention is continuing the beloved Zombie Walk that Courtenay residents have enjoyed in the past.

Events start at 3 p.m. on Halloween day (Saturday) on Fifth Street at Duncan Avenue, with numerous activities for the children, including games and activities, a pumpkin carving contest, and Kids and Pets Costume contests. There will be a “Thriller Flash Mob”, surprise and trick-or-treating along Fifth, starting at 4 p.m., followed by the Zombie Walk at 5 p.m. Parents with children under 12 years old will parade and trick-or-treat along Fifth Street while older participants will travel a circuit of Fourth and Sixth Streets to show off their costumes to the surrounding businesses. Other events include a Halloween Party for children under 12 and their parents at Courtenay Recreation’s Lewis Centre, a family friendly Haunted House at the LINC Youth Centre and an adult Halloween Party and InCON’s Costume Contest at Games and Grounds in its new location on Fourth Street, next to Butcher’s Block.

“With our business moving to Fourth Street, we are so happy to be able to extend InCON’s involvement in the downtown core,” said Alex Greenwood from Games and Grounds Coffee House.

Courtney Pozzolo of Undiscovered Photography represents one of two local businesses that created InCON Family Gaming Convention.

“InCON grew by nearly double last year in the Comox Valley, and we want to continue to grow community events during the year,” said Pozzolo. “The Zombie Walk continues to be a natural fit and we are excited to see what people bring to the walk this year!”
