For 2013 we’re sticking pretty close to the same route that we did last year.
We are NOT a parade – just a group of private citizens out for a walk. This means that we must follow all traffic and pedestrian laws: cross at crosswalks, stop for lights, etc. Please be careful out there, and watch out for your fellow zombies to make sure that this is a fun and safe event.
It’s also worth noting that 12th avenue is open for traffic in City Square again – so watch where you’re standing and milling around. The area in front of the stage, and the entire square is open to us, so let’s make use of that space. And please, no littering or making messes.
From City Square Plaza, we’ll head up the Scarth Street Mall and enter the Cornwall Centre at the 11th Ave doors. We’ll continue through the mall, exiting at Saskatchewan Drive, and then head west to Broad St.
Turning south on Broad street, we’ll go to 12th Ave and turn east, passing the Harvard Broadcasting studios before heading south on Hamilton Street. When we get almost to Victoria we’ll pause so that the group can condense again before entering the alleyway connecting to Scarth Street.
This is an amazing place for photographers to take photos of us. It worked amazingly well last year, and I hope it will work for us this year as well.
Don’t hesitate to find me and ask questions! I’ll be the zombie with a megaphone!
