For one Saturday in late October, Torontonians can get a brief glimpse of what it may look like to live through a zombie apocalypse. On Saturday, October 25, the 12th annual Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade will take over downtown streets!
This year there will be pre-parade festivities in Nathan Phillips Square which will include the intriguingly named Zombie Strike Midway, where participants can play carnival-style games with an undead-bent. There will also be a charitable angle to the 2014 Zombie Walk; those who have yet to abandon their live bank accounts can take up the opportunity to donate to the World Wildlife Fund, who will be putting any contributions towards a Help the Bats initiative. Once the parade starts, the route will move northward along University Avenue, then turn east on College Street, proceed southbound on Yonge Street, and then end back at Nathan Phillips Square. After the parade, more festivities are planned in Nathan Phillips Square with a best costume contest, and a performance by The Creepshow!
So, if you see any undead-looking individuals walking the streets tomorrow, don’t be alarmed! The Zombie Walk can be accessed by taking CitySightseeing Toronto’s hop on hop off tour to stop # 1.
