Windsor Zombie Walk is about to summon hundreds of the undead to downtown Windsor on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
This is a free family friendly event. In addition, prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.
During the walk organizers will be taking photos of the best dressed (most disgusting) zombies and cutest little zombies. After the walk winners will be announced and prizes awarded at Dieppe Park for Best Zombie, Best Survivor (individual or team), and Cutest Little Zombie (Children 10 years old and under).
At 6pm the fun begins at Dieppe Park with collecting non-perishable food items and cash donations. Proceeds to support The Downtown Mission . So please bring what you can for the needy.
At 7:30pm Windsor Zombie Walk 2017 will proceed into Downtown Windsor’s core down Ouellette Ave.
To participate all you have to do is put on your best zombie costume and show up at the foot of Ouellette Ave. and Riverside Drive and bring non-perishable food items or a cash donation.
Canned and dry goods for the Windsor Downtown Mission will be collected at the walk.
Don’t worry these zombies are not here to feed on you but to help feed the hungry.
Zombie Walk was founded in 2006 by Jakub Witalec and each year the event gets bigger! When asked if there was a Zombie Walk for 2014 in a Facebook message, Jakub responded, “nope not this year, will be back next year.” 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. For 2017 Captain Hindgrinder will not be able to participate for health reasons but has passed the responsibility of organizing this year’s walk to supporter Lori D.
