It's that time of year again... our fourth season of doing the annual Zombie Walk in downtown Toronto!
10th Annual ZOMBIE Walk
It was on a dreary autumn day, 10 years ago, that an undead tradition was born!
10 Years ago, in our fair city, the earth caved in and the dead crawled and lurched their way from their graves to walk the streets of Toronto!
On October 20th the Dead will rise once more for the 10th annual Toronto Zombie Walk and YOU are invited!!
For the first time in the history of the Toronto Zombie Walk, the organizers are proud to partner with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to help carry out their mission of eliminating heart disease and stroke.
Join the Toronto Zombie Walk and special Guests, John A. Russo and Russ Streiner, as The Toronto Zombie Walk Grand Marshals, in a special DEATH DAY celebration and zombie walk. This year promises to be our biggest and goriest yet, with vendors, bands and more BLOOD!
Zombies who register will be eligible for an after walk draw, winners will be announce the week after the walk.
