The Bank Street BIA’s zombie walk happened Hallowe’en day, and despite the rain, it was a ghoulish fete.

All three grand prizes were handed out to happy Bank Street shoppers who now have giant shopping sprees to enjoy. Well over a hundred zombies lined the street, threatening to munch on pedestrians and handing out key cards for the prize coffins. A flash mob, courtesy of the Capital Pride zombie contingent, stole the show around La Prep where drag queen Sapphire Champagne was hosting.

We visited various businesses who were participating in the day’s festivities; Planet Botanix offered tarot card readings (mine were very positive!) and The Comic Book Shoppe lent me a lightsaber umbrella to stay dry. We attempted to stave off the zombie invasion with an inflatable Dalek, but to no avail.

It was a fun way to spend Hallowe’en afternoon, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the Bank Street BIA comes up with next year!
