After answering the same questions over and over again on the Facebook page, we gathered all the most popular questions right here:
Q: What? a zombie walk?
A: A zombie walk is a public manifestation, where participants walk around dressed as zombies and have zombie makeup. Zombie walks have been organized before in several cities all around the world since 2005. It’s free and open to everyone.
Q: It is possible to be “zombified” at the Place des Festivals?
A: Yes, you can be “zombified” at the make-up tent from noon to 3pm in exchange of 15$ (tip not included). It’s better to come early because we do not take reservations. * Don’t forget to bring old clothes.
Q: Will there be a zombie party after the walk or everybody goes back to the cemetery?
A: A great gathering will be held after the walk at l’Abreuvoir (403 Rue Ontario Est, Montreal) for an official party right after the walk. More details to come. 18 years old and up +
Q: Can we bring kids?
A: Everybody is welcome, although remember that some kids could be scared as they might not share the same taste for zombies as you do.
Q: Do we have to be dressed as a zombie for the Zombie Walk?
A: You don’t have to be dressed as a zombie but it is highly recommended, as if half the people are just following around without a costume, there’s no point being in a zombie walk. Remember that it’s a free public event and that there are no obligations except obey to the guidelines so everybody can have fun.GUIDELINES
Q: Can we be dressed as zombie hunters or survivors?
A: Yes, but absolutely no weapons of any kind will be tolerated, real or fake. We will have zero tolerance as this was imposed by the authorities to let us organize the walk.
Remember as well that it is a zombie walk and that you will most likely go by unnoticed dressed as civilians.
Q: When do we have to be there and what’s the route?
A: We leave from the Place des Festivals (Metro Place-des-Arts) at 3;00pm, this year we wander through the streets of downtown Montreal!
Q: Do we have to sign on somewhere or we just show up there?
A: No need to sign on for this year. You just need to show up dressed as a zombie with your makeup on at Place des festivals before 3:00PM
Q: Do we need to have our costume ready upon arriving at the Place des festivals?
A: Yes, you can finish your costume upon arriving here but it will be pretty crowded so it’s better to be ready when you arrive. See link page.
Q: How can I help?
A: Either by giving us some money via Paypal as we are a non-profit organization and we have lots of expanses, by buying some merch, or by being a helper. See help-us page.
