Dead to walk again in Nelson

The annual Zombie Walk takes place at 3 p.m. on Saturday

Submitted by the Civic Theatre

Traffic in the downtown core will be slowed to a shuffle when the dead walk again in Nelson.

A rare breed of Alpine Zombie has infected your neighbours. Keep indoors. Actually, don’t, because you are going to want to have a coffee and nibble of flesh with them at the sixth Annual Zombie Walk taking place this Saturday.

If you are of the living, you may want to come down to The Civic Theatre early and get into convincing disguise by one of the expert make-up artists between 1 and 3 p.m. Donations are gladly accepted to cover their expenses for latex and make-up (a small price to pay to not be devoured).

Join the walk at 3 p.m, which travels through downtown Nelson and ends back at The Civic Theatre for a free screening of Zombieland at 4 p.m.
