Zombie walk coming soon to the downtown core in Houston

Walking Dead fans, Halloween lovers, and make up enthusiasts one and all,

Walking Dead fans, Halloween lovers, and make up enthusiasts one and all, Houston is going to have its first zombie walk around the downtown core on Oct. 29 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Nicky Cranmer, organizer and pioneer of the zombie walk, explains the importance of this event, “I figured that unfortunately with everything we’ve lost here, everybody seems somber and down. I mean we lost a grocery store, we lost a mine, a mill. And to have something—maybe not something a lot of people would have assumed—but something to have fun, make light of things, and just enjoy a day. No worries, no stress, no nothing.”

Cranmer explained that the event will start around the parking area by Remax where everyone will meet. They are trying to have the “Thriller” by Michael Jackson play at Mike’s Audio while they walk down the sidewalks so that a zombie dance can be performed if people choose to do so. In addition, Cranmer is working with Pleasant Valley Plaza to potentially have a Halloween themed movie played at the theatre after the walk. Details about what movie and cost have yet to be determined.

“I don’t expect a lot of people, but I am hoping that the people that don’t come, that watch it go, ‘Oh! I should have done it.’ And then they’ll want to do it next year,” said Cranmer.

It was a little late in timing for Cranmer and others to get this event on the go, but now that all lights are green, they arehoping that next year the event will take place in September where they will be guaranteed no snow.

So if you want to two excuses this October to dress up and have fun, join the zombie walk. There will be prizes for adults that dress up and participate, and candy for kids. This is a great opportunity to be apart of the community in a way that makes light of the stress and struggles we all share together. If you have any questions about this event contact Nicky Cranmer via Facebook or call 250-845-8260.
