Former Sault Area Hospital site overrun by zombies (14 photos)Saturday, October 26, 2013 by: Donna Hopper
Okay, the former Sault Area Hospital site isn't quite overrun with the walking dead.
But we at SooToday.com wanted to get into the Halloween spirit, and what better way to do that than tour an abandoned hospital with a family dressed in zombie garb?
We'd like to extend our gratitude to the Cormier family for offering their time and zombie talents for this shoot, as well as Janna Goulay-Pond of Perfectly Painted Faces for the extra creepy zombie makeup.
If you're looking for something creepy and/or fun to do to mark All Hallow's Eve this year, here's a list of Halloween events taking place over the next few days.
The 5th annual Soo Zombie Walk begins at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre with zombie games, live music and vendors on October 26 at 1 p.m.
Activities include limb tossing and fishing for fingers, and live entertainment will be provided by James Watterworth, Greg Calhoun, Haggith, and Sykotyk Rampage.
Those aged 13 and over can register for the Zombie Walk for $2 plus one non-perishable food item.
Participation for those 12 and under is one non-perishable food item.
All donations go to fill the shelves of the Algoma University and Sault College student food banks.
Be sure to arrive early to have your zombie makeup done by Perfectly Painted Faces, and have your photo taken by Mark Primavera or CC Communications for their zombie photo contests.
The walk begins at 6 p.m. and concludes at the Bondar Pavilion with the closing ceremonies and award presentations at 7:30 p.m.
