Zombies take over Downtown Penticton

Zombie walk draws undead to Gyro Park

Who knew zombies had so much fun?

There might not been quite enough of them to call it a zombie apocalypse, but a crowd of the walking dead shambling through downtown Penticton was just as terrifying. At least, when they weren’t laughing or showing off their bloody spare parts.

“This is my husband. His name is Less,” said zombie bride Fay Terry, clasping a severed hand and holding it up for everyone to see.

The parade of zombies was part of the Zombie Walk and Games event on Oct. 1 in Gyro Park, sponsored by the team that brought launched the Penti-Con sci-fi/fantasy convention earlier this year.
