Montréal Zombie Walk – On Saturday, more than 10,000 zombies will be swarming the streets of Montréal. The worst predictions have come true and the Trouble-Fête has not relinquished its powerful grip on the city. To not incur the wrath of this creature, everyone is strongly encouraged to join this gruesome shuffle.
Once again, Montréal will be host to the biggest zombie walk in Canada. Make-up artists and zombie entertainers will be taking over Place des Festivals and keeping this horde of undead trudging onward.
The zombies will be making their way west along De Maisonneuve Street, then turning onto McGill College Avenue and returning to the Place des Festivals via Sainte-Catherine Street. The walk will be interspersed with a dozen or so highly entertaining spectacles: mariachi zombies, dismembered human marionettes, a zombie military marching band and dreadfully funny floats.
Everything will wrap up with a surprise dance performance by choreographer Gardy Fury at Place des Festivals, followed by shows by PUP, Chocolat and Duchess Says!
Put on your best undead costume!
