The 2010 Vancouver Zombiewalk is this Saturday as hundreds of “undead” will take to the streets of Vancouver.
All willing zombies are to meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery at 4:30pm for the annual walk around downtown. The route will take the procession down Robson to Denman, toward Beach, right up Davie then end at the Seawall, “where the Zombies can decompress, decompose, and continue to frolic … and of course, take lots of pictures!”
I have read on several sites that it is important to remember to not vandalize property — no smearing excessive “blood” or knocking things over. This is to be a peaceful zombie march.
Show up early at 3:30pm to learn the moves you’ll need to be a part of this year’s Thrill The World in October. Vancouver is a part of this annual worldwide simultaneous Thriller Dance and its zombie numbers are growing each year. In 2009, 242 zombies danced at the Yaletown Roundhouse and raised over $4,500 for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
You don’t need to have a dance background or experience but you will need to learn how to dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Fortunately there are rehearsal dates and meetups such as the one this Saturday ahead of the Zombiewalk.
