Zombie walk Saturday in Downtown Vancouver

Zombie Walk

Zombie walks, organized public gatherings with people dressed as zombies, have taken place across North America as early as 2001 in Sacramento, California; the Sacramento event was originally intended to promote a local midnight movie festival. It didn't take long before a slew of cities across the continent began their own walks and adopted them as annual affairs. Vancouver's first undead jaunt took place Aug. 27, 2005 and had over 400 participants. This Saturday's march is expected to draw more than 2,000. Walkers are to meet at 2 p.m. on the north side of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The walk kicks off at 3 p.m.
