The 7th annual WZW is happening on October 22nd at 6:30pm. This family-friendly event is open to all ages, and, since there is no registration or fees required, we will be encouraging donations of non-perishable food items that will be given to local charities. Remember, everyone, this isn't just a fun and creepy event, but all for a good cause: helping out our neighbours!
Everyone participating is asked to dress in their best zombie costume and meet at the Bus Terminal in Downtown Welland. This is a family-friendly event and people of all ages are encouraged to participate or just come out to watch!
The WZW starts at 7, leaving the bus terminal, making our way down the north side of East Main Street, across Bridge 13, looping back across Dvision Street Bridge, walking along the north side of Division Street, crossing Hellems Avenue, and heading north on Hellems Avenue returning to the bus terminal. We will then be selecting some of the best zombie costumes, and awarding prizes for the best ones, with help from the audience. Prizes generously donated by many local businesses and individuals, in a number of categories.
We ask all zombies attending to please follow these guidelines for your safety and everyone's enjoyment:
Remain on sidewalks during the walk.
Please obey all traffic signals and cross at crosswalks.
No fake weapons.
No touching spectators or property or vehicles.
And, most of all, have fun!
Let's make this best WZW ever, not just in attendance numbers, but in donations! Let's show Welland we care, so please share, and be there!
