Soulless corpses invade Fort Langley

“I can’t believe how much blood I’m going through, today!” exclaimed volunteer Tandye Rowe, while she transformed everyday people into soulless corpses for the Fort Langley Zombie Walk on Saturday afternoon.

The “undead” limped along the sidewalks of downtown Fort Langley as part of the second annual walk, hosted and organized by Fort Langley Art Studio owners Laura Murphy and Curtis Zondag.

This wasn’t a fundraiser, nor was it really an awareness raiser, other than bringing lots and lots of folks into the village, Murphy noted.

This was just a fun family event, that celebrated the macabre.

“This is just for people to have a great time, to help bring people into town and help some of the other stores get some attention on a day where business would otherwise be slow,” Murphy said. “Overall, people are really excited. There are lots of families, lots of kids, here.”

The Thriller dancer troupe performed to the Michael Jackson 1980s smash, before the walk started.

“Zombies” of all shapes, sizes, and ages shuffled and groaned their way north along Glover Road before swinging back in the opposite direction, to the amusement of most visitors, and bemusement of a few others who were unaware of what was going on.

Waldo and Tubbs Pet Food & Supplies brought snakes, tarantulas and chameleons for zombies to pose with and for photos by donation.

Organizers expected about 50 people to show up at last year’s walk, and more than 300 took part.

“So we went for it again this year,” Murphy said, estimating that at least as many people as last year came out to become a zombie on Saturday.
