The Toronto Zombie Walk, an on-going success in Downtown Toronto, will be held this weekend in downtown Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square. Last years walk reeled in about 10,000 people and they’re expecting an even larger turn-out this year in support of The Heart and Stroke Foundation and their CPR Makes You Undead Campaign. This year’s zombies of Toronto are making a point of the 3 simple steps to CPR and how important and effective simply knowing them can be. The event is sponsored by Wholesale Halloween Costumes, who are providing everything from fake blood and intestine, to make-up, costumes, party accessories and other event materials.
At the start and finish of the walk at Nathan Phillips Square will be a Zombie Market where participants can shop for Halloween supplies, have their make-up done by professional artists, or pictures taken. The walk will also consist of a Halloween parade, costume contest, carved pumpkin judging, and special guests such as Linnea Quigley (from Return of the Living Dead), Evil Dead the Musical Cast to preform before the walk begins, and Horror-punk band The Indepenents to play post walk. For Linnea’s autograph and to enjoy the pre- walk show, participants are advised to arrive around noon.
This Zombie Walk also features unique groups of people called “Krewes” which range from vampire social clubs, undead legions of zombies, monster syndicates, or simply community groups who joined together in themed costume. The Toronto Zombie Walk is proud to feature the 2013 Krewes; the Rambunctious, The Ontario Ghostbusters, and the Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School Drumline and Dance Crew specially zombified with make-up and accessories provided by Wholesale Halloween Costumes. In addition, the official Toronto Zombie Walk after party will or The Retro- Mortis Halloween Party presented by Fangoria will be held at 3030 Dundas Street.
With Zombie Walks held all over the world, the Toronto Zombie walk has made vast strides in gathering communities in support important causes, zombie lovers and advocates, and those who love all things horror. The Toronto Zombie Walk is a fun and exciting event for all ages and continues to work towards benefitting important charitable organizations such as The Heart and Stroke foundation.
