Decked out in their best zombie wear, fake blood, and gruesome flesh wounds, they'll be looking for brains.
Yes, zombies are invading Fort Langley! The first-ever Zombie Fest Walk, hosted by Fort Langley Studio, takes place Saturday at 1 p.m. Watch for the "zombies this way" signs posted along the route. The walk begins at the new studio and continues down Glover Road to Mavis Avenue and back to the Glover Road studio's haunted gallery.
"We're promoting this as a family-friendly [pet friendly, too] event, so kids can have fun without the tears," said studio owner Curtis Zondag. "We don't want anybody to get too scared."
For anyone looking for a zombie makeover, Special FX makeup artists will also be on site starting at 11 a.m. to transform people with gruesome details. This service is offered by donation to a youth artist fund. "There is a prize for best costume and an art contest for teens, so we're pretty excited," said Zondag. "There should be some fun yet creepy things."
Following the walk, people can still stagger their bloodied selves through the studio's ghoulish haunted gallery - which will be filled with creepy horror movie-type art until Oct. 31.
"So far, our Facebook page indicates 60 participants, but... we're hoping it will be really big - maybe 100 or more."
