The community of Roberts Creek is getting into the Halloween spirit this year in grand style. On Sat., Oct. 31 the Roberts Creek Community Association is hosting an all coast Zombie Walk and a Graveyard Decorating Contest with an emphasis on community fun.
The Zombie Walk festivities start at 1:30pm with a makeup tutorial at the Mandela. Optional registration for souvenirs and prizes starts at 2:30, and the walk formally kicks off at 3pm. The walk is an unstructured 45-minute amble through Roberts Creek ending up at the Gazebo behind the library for prizes.
“The walk will be the most visible part of our celebrations,” says Ian Thomas, event organizer, “but I think the most exciting is the Graveyard Decoration Contest – here is where the creative in our community can take a six-foot by three-foot plot and turn it into something spooky.”
The contest space is on the lawn in front of the Gumboot Restaurant. Decorating a grave site requires pre-registration at www.RobertsCreekCommunity.ca. Prizes and bragging rights will be awarded just after sunset on Halloween.
