NEWS RELEASE

SOO ZOMBIE WALK

**************************
This October, the dead rise again!

SAULT STE. MARIE - There are rising reports of Saultites succumbing to a strange infection. Side effects may include a hunger for brains, slow, unbalanced movement, and a sudden urge to groan...

A group of resistance fighters, recruited by Stryker Corporation, will seek to fend off the undead hordes once more. Meanwhile, Soo Zombie Walk organizers hope to spread the infectious plight among any humans who dare to visit the Bushplane Heritage Centre.

Whether you've accepted your fate or seek to fight against it, the Soo Zombie Walk returns for its eighth year on Saturday, Oct. 22.

The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre will open its doors to the shambling undead and resistance fighters at 4 p.m. for two hours of live music, face painting, vendors, food, games, photo booths, contests and prizes.

Participants are encouraged to dress up as either zombies or Stryker Corporation members (the resistance/zombie hunters) and secret judges will be on the lookout for creative costumes!

At 6 p.m. sharp, the undead masses take to the streets.

The undead will lurch from the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre along Bay Street towards Clergue Park, where Stryker Corporation will try to fend off the zombie herd. The walk will continue up Brock Street and onto Queen Street before participants return to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre for closing ceremonies. Prizes for best costumes will also be awarded following the walk.

And the admission to participate in this ghoulish festival? $3 and a canned good to donate to the Soup Kitchen Community Centre. Supervised children under 11 years of age only require a canned good to join in on the fun.

The Soo Zombie Walk Committee will also be hosting a Paint Nite Fundraiser in support of this year's Soo Zombie Walk. Join us for a night of ghoulish fun at OLG Casino on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Perfectly Painted Faces will be on hand providing fabulous Halloween face art and there will be a draw for an awesome Halloween gift bag provided by the Soo Zombie Walk Committee.

This is a 19+ event. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased by visiting here.

Come out and help support the annual Soo Zombie Walk!
