Beware Zombie Outbreak

  • Oct. 21, 2013 1:00 p.m.

If you’re looking for a fun way to get into the Hallowe’en spirit this Saturday (Oct. 26), check out the “Zombie Outbreak” event at Queen Charlotte’s Hayden Turner park. The Queen Charlotte Secondary grad class is organizing the spine-tingling afternoon, and they’re inviting zombie hunters of all ages to come down to the park and learn how to defeat the undead. Here’s the imaginary scenario: radioactive zombies from Japan have started washing up on the shores of Queen Charlotte, along with other debris from the Japanese tsunami. Emergency personnel have gathered in Hayden Turner Park to react to the zombie threat and try to fight them off, but they need all the help they can get. Teacher Norman Wagner says the event is going to be an epic combination of fun and frightening, just right for Hallowe’en. “We want them running out of there screaming,” he said. “There will be some scary stuff going on… I think it will be a blast.” Kids are encouraged to bring their weapons, like toy guns, plastic swords and light sabers (no real weapons or ammunition, please!). Admission to the zombie event is $10 per person. The park opens at 12 noon on Saturday, Oct. 26, and the zombie fighting will continue until 6 pm.
