Zombie attacks imminent

With Halloween approaching, residents of the valley are being warned of zombies swarming about.

Real Storage in Windermere will be reinforcing its headquarters in preparation for an attack on Saturday, October 25th.

We want to show the Columbia Valley that we are their best defence in the event of a zombie apocalypse, and inviting a whole lot of zombies over is the best way to show that, said Kim Baker, the manager of Real Storage.

Zombies are to show up at Real Storage in Windermere by 2 p.m., where first-timers will be given a brief zombie tutorial and the best-looking zombie will win a $50 gift card to The Source.

Just look as dead as possible like you have no spine practically, she said. Its something people enjoy doing, so we thought wed get involved.

And those willing to brave the zombies will be offered discounts on storage during the attack.

Saturdays attack isnt expected to be the last; eradicating the valley of zombies will take more than a single-pronged approach.

Beginning at 4 p.m. on Friday, October 31st,zombies are expected to lurk through the heart of Invermere.

For the second year in a row, Fire Vixen Tattoos has invited the undead to assemble at Pothole Park on the afternoon of Halloween. From there, theyll be hunting for fresh meat while making their way to the Station Pub (new liquor laws now allow for minor-aged zombies to dine at the Station).

Theres no cost for zombies to attend either event, as theyve both been organized for the love of Halloween.
