THE sad news reaches us that the Canberra Zombie Walk has been cancelled.
Organisers made a post to facebook:
We have some very unfortunate news. The 2016 Canberra Zombie Walk, set for 29 October 2016, is cancelled.
However, there will still be great ghoulish events on that night, so stay tuned for details!
We’ll also be looking into creating a couple of smaller events, like trivia or another theme night, early next year,
Finally, we will still be planning to go ahead with the 2017 walk, with details to come closer to date.
Sorry everyone, and please spread the word.
“CityNews” got in touch with organisers as to what brought this on and we had the following reply:
Hi John, to be completely honest, there isn’t enough monetary and voluntary support for the walk. Everything we do comes out of the pocket of the organisers, which we really don’t mind seeing it is for a great cause the entire day is a lot of fun. However, we can’t keep doing this alone.
