Halloween festivities got an early start in Nelson Saturday as a few zombies took to the streets for the Civic Theatre Society Zombie walk.

Traffic was snarled in the downtown core of the Heritage City Saturday afternoon as zombies marched down Baker Street from the Civic Theatre led by a New Orleans-style funeral band.

The zombie walked started from the Civic Theatre’s Vernon Street location before making its way down Baker Street to Ward Street and back to the theatre location using Victoria and Hall Streets.

Zombie walks are relatively common in large cities, especially in North America.
