Toronto to get a zombie walk after all

The Toronto Zombie Walk is not dead yet. Although the organizers axed the official event, they rose from the grave and are now hosting the Toronto Zombie Walk Funeral and Wake on August 29 at Trinity Bellwoods Park.

After the hordes of undead gather at the park at 2 p.m., they'll stagger south to feast at the CNE. Perhaps the infamous food building will serve up brains for the occasion.

The TZW started back in 2003 and it had amassed an army of over 10,000 zombies to participate in its annual Halloween parade by 2014. However, it was unable to secure enough funding for this year's event.

While the funeral should satiate some of the undead participants, those still hankering for human flesh can look forward to another zombie walk that recently announced itself on Facebook. But beware, this one looks eerily similar to the bait-and-switch events that plagued many-a-newsfeed earlier this summer.

Will you mourn the undead at the Toronto Zombie Walk funeral? Let us know in the comments.
