Be not afraid this Saturday as the seemingly undead take to the streets of Vancouver — it’s just the 5th annual Vancouver Zombie Walk. It’s a march for all ages and all who would like to participate, sidle, limp, and moan their way through downtown streets.

Meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery steps by 3:00pm on Saturday, August 18, 2012. The walk will then depart at 4:00pm and head down Robson toward Denman. It will turn left on Denman and continue to English Bay ending at the A-Maze-Ing laughing statues.

Be sure to be appropriate zombies, refraining from vandalizing property in any way or smearing “blood” on anything along the march, aside from yourselves. There may be young ones participating but do your best not to scare unsuspecting children along the way.

The Zombie-A-Go-Go at Sanctuary @ Club 23 West after party is free for zombies before 10:00pm. There’s also an after party at The Cellar on Granville, presented by Vancouver Makeup FX for $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Full information about the event and the parties is available on the Facebook Event Page.

Zombie walks have been around for the last decade in various cities around the world. The first on record was in Sacremento, California in 2001 and the world record was set in 2006 when 894 participated in Pittsburgh’s first “Walk of the Dead”.

For more zombie action, check out Thrill The World Vancouver, which is the annual Thriller dance for a cause in October.
