Zombie walk brings new life in Riccarton
Walk gives people 'something to do'ANNA TURNER
Blood, ripped clothes and gasps of shock followed the living dead as they walked the streets of Riccarton last night.
About 30 people took part in the second annual Christchurch Zombie Walk, staggering from Hagley Park and up Riccarton Rd in zombie costume.
Organiser Rhio Popham, 19, said she created the event to give Christchurch people something to do.
"I saw one they did in Toronto and it was awesome. I thought Christchurch is just as awesome so why not?"
Popham said the event was all about having fun.
"One of the best parts is the look on people's faces as they drive past and take a second look," she said.
Zombie Cody Dockerty, who came to the event because he loved costume role play, said he had bitten two people.
"They tasted good. Medium rare."
One zombie's tastes were a little more civilised.
She popped into the convenience store for a Kit Kat, but lamented the fact they were "all out of brains".
