Each year, thousands of zombies meet at a designated location in the mother city, dressed to … um… die? all in the name of charity. The gorier, the better as the undead meet to begin their walk to raise awareness. Last year, the Lucky Lucy Foundation, an organisation which acts as an ambassador for animals who are being abused or neglected, was the charity of choice.
They gather in their packs or herds or do zombies travel solo? Whatever it is, that zombie apocalypse we were all secretly preparing for may well be upon us … no need to protect yourself against them, this is one army you can actually join!
The Zombie Walk started out really small as something “fun to do” and has since grown into an annual event where in late October (just in time for Halloween), zombies unite all in the name of a good cause.
Well, it’s almost that time of the year again…
Walking Dead can take some pointers from our enthusiastic Capetonians who pull off the zombie-look quite realistically. Is this why we’re known as the laidback province? Hmm.
The costumes are radical and the make-up exemplary. The moans and grunts emanating from the crowd will have any innocent victim… sorry, bystander, paralysed with fear.
This year the Zombie Walk will begin at Thibault Square at 17H00 and the horde of living dead will march together, according to the Facebook page: Zombie Walk (Cape Town), “demanding brains.” It’s a walk “aimed at raising people’s awareness on social negligence.”
