On Saturday, August 13, 2011, Fort St. John played host to the walking dead. Zombies took over the streets and mall as they made their way through town.
A group of local residents took part in what is now an International event. The earliest non-promotional Zombie Walk having taken place in Toronto, Ontario in October 2003.
There has never been a direct reason for the Zombie Walks, although some cities do them around large events and others for charities. Many though, just want to embrace the living dead.
