Undead come out to play for White Rock Zombie Walk

It's just a mild infection... and a wee invasion. It's the third annual zombie walk along White Rock's (living) waterfront.



Marine Drive residents escaped unscathed despite a zombie invasion along the waterfront Sunday.

Dozens of the undead shuffled, walked and crawled Sunday for the third-annual White Rock Zombie Walk, organized by area resident Teresa Brauer.

The zombie aficionado began organizing the walk following her move from Edmonton four years ago, where she had set up a zombie walk as well.

This year, Brauer said there was a noticeable increase in participants, with nearly 100 people of all walks of life taking to the streets.

“We had a bus from a senior centre who brought in donations, and they were dressed up. Their donations far exceeded what we could have ever imagined,” she said. “We even ended up with an unexpected police escort.”

Her love for the walking dead was the result of working on wardrobe and set design on the television show, Fear Itself, in 2008.

“I’ve always thought there was something fantastic about zombies. From (George) Romero you had these slow-moving zombies that you could outrun easily, to modern movies with Will Smith when they’re superhuman fast,” she said.

And it wasn’t just about the guts and gore for the mother of two. The event doubled as a fundraiser for the Peace Arch Food Bank, bringing in a number of much-needed goods.

“This time of the year, it can get scary. With all the school fees and the supplies, it’s really tough,” she said. “We really wanted to be able to help out.”

Langley’s Jorden Hall, 14, (photo by Boaz Joseph) won a prize for the best infected costume/makeup.
