The Regina Zombie Walk is a unique event where like-minded zombie enthusiasts congregate together and walk around the city to raise food donations for the Regina & District Food Bank. The Regina Zombie Walk will begin at 3:30 pm in Victoria Park and participates will be able to register for our costume contest. At 4:00 pm we will be holding a costume contest for the zombie contest. Around 4:30 pm, we will begin walking around downtown Regina.
Location: Victoria Park
Date: September 26
Fee: The event is free to attend, but we would appreciate it if you are able to bring a non-perishable food item for the Regina & District Food Bank
1. No Vandalism
It might seem like fun to you, but purposefully placing handprints, pouring blood, or leaving other marks is vandalism, and it can get us in a lot of trouble. Even if the material is water-soluble, someone still needs to clean it up. Yes, the rain will wash it away, but we can’t leave a big ‘blood’ stain in Victoria Park for a week. When the walk is over, no one should know we were ever there.
2. No Weapons – Real or Imagined at Cornwall Center
Near the beginning of the Zombie Walk, we will be walking through Cornwall Centre. If you come dressed up as a zombie hunter or any costume with a weapon, you will not be able to come with us into Cornwall Centre and you will need to take an alternate route to meet us at the Cornwall Centre exit on Saskatchewan Drive. The main reason for this is because Cornwall Centre has a strict no weapons policy. This is the first time in several years that we will be allowing a person to have anything that resembles a weapon for the Regina Zombie Walk. Cornwall Centre worked with us for several years for our event, and we would like to respect their wishes about weapons.
We spoke with the Regina City Police, and while they normally prefer people not to walk around downtown Regina with fake weapons they will make an exception for us this year. With that being said, they recommended that we put orange tape around the weapons to make it clearer that they are fake. We also ask that you avoid pointing weapons at people in cars or on the street.
3. Be Safe
Our walk takes place on public AND private property this year. Be aware of your surroundings, watch out for traffic and hazards, and look out for each other.
4. Be Courteous
Just because it’s fun for us to dress up like zombies and groan and moan, doesn’t mean everybody thinks its fun. In fact, some people, even fully grown adults, are downright frightened by the thought of zombies. And you could scar a child for life with the wrong actions. Have fun, but don’t force yourself on others.
5. Stay In Character
This year the walk takes place in some REALLY public places – downtown and through the Cornwall Centre. Let’s keep the zombie acting, walking, and groaning going as much as we can. And let’s remember that zombies don’t swear.
