NORGOMA WELCOMES THE ZOMBIE WALK THIS SUMMER

Ripe for resurrection

Fundraiser aims to bring Zombie Walk back from the dead

Ninth annual Soo Zombie Walk in Sault Ste. Marie. 

Sault Ste. Marie has spoken — and it appears the city wants zombies, organizers of the annual walk say.
When the 10th annual Soo Zombie Walk was cancelled this year due to lack of funding, the Soo Zombie Walk Committee was “immediately overwhelmed” with responses from local businesses and citizens hoping to make the event happen.
Over the past two weeks, the “outpour” of support has “snowballed” into a special, spooky “mega” event focused on raising funds for next year’s Soo Zombie Walk, organizers say.
The M.S. Norgoma will open its doors to zombies – and Halloween fans alike – for the Soo Zombie Walk BOOgie Down Fundraiser this Saturday at 3 p.m. The Soo Zombie Walk Committee and Soo York City have teamed up to provide live music, food and refreshments, face painting and activities, including a DIY “slime” booth. Maker North will show off 3D printing demos while Svenny McG will host a video gaming booth.
Prizes for best costumes will be held at 6:30 p.m., open to all attendees.
At 7 p.m., Sault Stryders will host their Halloween two- and five-kilometre walk/run from the Norgoma to the boardwalk. Once the run or walk is complete, participants can head back to the M.S. Norgoma for a Sault Stryder-sponsored treat.
Haunted Norgoma will take over the M.S. Norgoma and kick off its season opening at 7 p.m. Its child-friendly Haunted Maze takes place from 7 to 8 p.m., then things get “truly terrifying” for adults from 8 to 10 p.m.. The Haunted Norgoma continues every day until the final maze Halloween night.
Whether participants join in for one, two or all three events, canned goods are accepted, in addition to admission.
