Windsor Zombie Walk is a one-of-a-kind event founded in 2006 by Jakub Witalec, each year the event grew bigger! In 2014 Witalec decided not to hold the event. Instead of letting this fun event die Micheal Reeve (aka Captain Hindgrinder) along with several Windsorites decided to keep the Zombies alive! In 2015 a new organizer took over but due to a family emergency had to cancel the event. In 2016, Captain Hindgrinder the cursed zombie pirate and his undead crew rose from the depths of the Detroit River to lead the walk once again. In 2017 Captain Hindgrinder was not able to participate for health reasons but passed the responsibility of organizing the walk to supporter Lori Deschaine. Unfortunately, in 2018 the event did not happen. Determined to keep this fun family Halloween event going Eyes On Windsor’s Eric Bonnici reached out to Captain Hindgrinder to see if he could help with the event this year. Hindgrinder had already been approached by George Des Rosiers of Geekpool Windsor (a local Deadpool and Cosplay enthusiast community). Shortly after Shawn Lippert of Scarehouse Windsor reached out offering to keep Windsor Zombie Walk not only alive this year but keeping it alive for years to come by growing it into something larger and more exciting. With assistance from Scarehouse Windsor the Zombies will rise again.
