If it’s true that zombies eat brains they’ll be spoilt for choice in clever Canberra. With the popularity of the walking dead showing no signs of abating, locals can join in – or just watch – the Canberra Zombie Walk 2014. I wonder if any pollies will take part?
The all-ages, free walk takes place on 1 November, when participants can take advantage of the chance to dress as a zombie and stagger and lurch their way from Regatta Point to City Walk. The event aims to raise awareness of and funds for the Brain Foundation. I’ll be honest – this event isn’t my thing, but it’s a refreshing change from a punishing fun run, and the link between zombies and brains makes me smile.
Zombie revellers can kick on at an ‘after-party’ gig following the walk. See more at: www.canberrazombiewalk.com/
