The Calgary Zombie walk is an event that happens once yearly in the spirit of Halloween, The Walking Dead and dressing up to give Calgarians quite a scare.
It’s all in good fun of course, where thousands gather at Olympic Plaza dressed in their best attire of flesh, brains, blood and good vibes.
The streets were packed as zombies rushed the survivors to put up a fight for their life.
From Mario and Luigi to Batman to dead brides and corpses, the spirit of Halloween could be felt and heard throughout the downtown core.
They marched and trudged along Steven Ave. and carried onward to 17th Ave. where the crowd gathered to recollect and take a breather while socializing.
From young to old, everyone participated in the anguish.
The best part about Halloween is seeing the creativity people put into their costumes to further keep the tradition alive.
Passers-by were scared and surprised cheering and honking their horns as their eyes beheld the army of zombies strutting their way.
“I love this event and the spirit of Halloween,” one crowd member said.
Photographers took their stand along with the survivors while some were daring enough to make their way right into the heart of the walk to get the best angles and shots.
If you haven’t had the chance to attend before, I highly recommend giving yourself a good scare next Halloween.
