Zombie Walks Around The World

From Toronto’s altruistic zombie walk (last year, they raised funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation because, according to organizers, zombies have to plan for the future too) to London’s beer-fueled zombie pub crawl, there are a whole lot of places for the undead to convene and let their hair (or lack thereof) down. Whether you find yourself in Mexico or Sweden, Spain or Australia, you’ll be happy to know that the language of zombies is universal.

Toronto Zombie Walk, Toronto, Canada
This annual gathering of the undead is funded by the Government of Ontario so you know it’s legit. Every year, hordes of impressively dedicated zombies convene in the city’s Nathan Phillips Square to embark on a long, group shuffle to celebrate all things deliciously spooky. The zombies in Toronto take things seriously, so expect some hyper-realistic costumes and convincing grunts and lunges. Every year, the zombies raise money for a charity of choice. This year’s recipient will be the Canadian Wildlife Federation because zombies love animals (especially bats).

Stockholm Zombie Walk, Stockholm, Sweden
When it comes to zombie walks, the Swedes don’t mess around. Terrifying toddlers, scream-inducing seniors, and everyone in between all join forces to create a zombie epidemic like no other. Lurching through the streets, shopping malls, and public transit system in Stockholm, this typically polite group of undead folk draw crowds and their numbers seem to grow every year. Expect some incredible attention to detail but be careful- they want to eat your brains!

Mexico City Zombie Walk, Mexico City, Mexico
Having broken the world record for largest zombie gathering in 2011, it’s no wonder that Mexico City’s zombie walk is considered a must-see event for undead enthusiasts worldwide. Thousands upon thousands of zombies gather to flood the streets of the city with blood, guts, and incomprehensible groans. This walk has the feel of a true celebration, thanks to huge crowds and energetic vibe. Definitely the place to be for zombies who like to party hard.

Sydney Zombie Walk, Sydney, Australia
Taking place the day after Halloween, the Sydney Zombie Walk’s mission is to “infect those fortunate few who have yet to succumb to the latest zombie outbreak”. Who said zombies weren’t well-intentioned? If that weren’t enough, the walk serves as a fundraiser to support Australian Brain Foundation, which seems like a pretty fitting recipient. Volunteer zombie wranglers man the route to ensure that there aren’t too many stragglers and are also willing to offer helpful hints to add authenticity to participants’ looks. For instance, did you know that red food dye mixed with chocolate sauce creates frighteningly realistic fake blood? You do now.

Sitges Zombie Walk, Sitges, Spain
This annual event has quickly become the highlight of the Sitges Film Festival, attracting crowds who hope to join the masses of undead taking over the streets. Zombie make-up areas are set up beforehand to help newbies (or the artistically challenged) prepare to stumble and groan in style. Following the walk, zombies are invited to attend a free party and beach concert where they can socialize with fellow living-corpses, take in a few zombie flicks, and enjoy a few beverages from sponsor Jack Daniels.

The World Famous Zombie Pub Crawl, London, United Kingdom
This zombie pub crawl operates on the premise that just because you’re dead, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. And trust us, there’s a lot of fun to be had when hoards of zombies are armed with drink tickets, allowing them to knock back a free brew at each of 7 participating pubs. Participants are organized into two groups who begin on opposite ends of the crawl. When they meet in the middle, the leaders of each pack engage in a zombie breakdance battle to determine the victorious group. Beer, breakdancing, and brains. It doesn’t get much better than that.
