Toronto Zombie Walk
October 25, 2014 @ 12:00 - 15:00
It was on a dreary autumn day, 10 years ago, that an undead tradition in Toronto was born! The earth caved in and the dead crawled and lurched their way from their graves to walk the streets of Toronto. On October 20th 2012 the Dead has risen once more for the 10th annual Toronto Zombie Walk.
Several hundred gory human corpses gathered at Nathan Phillips Square, terrifying onlookers in the downtown core as they slowly snaked their way across Queen St. W., up University Ave., east on Dundas St. and south on Yonge St. Some of the undead costumes included a man in a meat grinder, a zombified TTC worker and many others with party hats plenty of brains, eyeballs and bugs, open wounds, and other injuries worthy of a few turns of the stomach.
Grand marshals John Russo and Russ Streiner — who co-created horror classic Night of the Living Dead — helped start the annual walk by signaling the throwing of two fake severed heads into the crowd.
The participation is free. Register for the next Toronto Zombie Walk at its official website. Check out the photos below to see how it all goes down.
Update. Toronto Zombie Walk 2015 seems to be cancelled.
