A mysterious forcefield ("rules") prevented the zombies of the 2013 Cape Town Zombie Walk from continuing their adventure into, or past, the South African Museum so the mangled group mingled before U-turning to follow the path back through the city to the starting point.

When we left the zombie horde it was wondering around outside the museum in Cape Town. (If you haven't read that yet, have a look, then come back to this page to read about the continuing adventures of the zombies.)

After waiting for the stragglers and regrouping for a little mingle and some moans the group headed back along Government Avenue.

Press Pause A few of the zombies were a little too enthusiastic in their zeal to retrace their steps while the rest of the horde was still gathering and organising outside the museum. The marshals told the zombies to wait so... um... they did.

Floor Show This zombie scared the bejesus out of a little girl so to try and calm her he broke out into song and dance, which freaked me out instead.

Air There Rumour has it[citation needed] the best place to store your zombie horde is on a drying rack for pickling. In the absence of that, a fence will do.

Defenceless Meanwhile, next door in The Company's Garden's rose garden, a wedding-photo extravaganza was taking place, although these kids were more captivated by the sight of the horde. Unlike in 2012, when numerous children were scarred for life, these kids enjoyed the spectacle probably due to the false sense of security provided by the spiky fence. Little do they know that when the real zombie apocalypse happens, no spiky fence is going to save them. Their parents really should educate them about such things.

Insides Out This guy or, rather, this suit (possibly with this guy) was wandering around in 2012. In 2013 it was accessorised with an equally gory (degored?) dog... thing.

There Will Be Blood (Just in case you were wondering.) Pro tip: don't die in your best white clothes. It's so hard to get blood stains out of cotton.

Eye Of The Beholder It's not quite the undead baby with an axe in its head that someone was looking for in 2012 but it'll do. Those spikes are still killer accessories.

Thriller Back at Thibault Square, the horde was officially disbanded, but a few creatures hung around to dance! Stomp stomp stomp. Switch switch switch.

The Children Are Our Future These ones are undead so I don't know what that says about our future, actually.



The end... until the horde rises next October... (unless you missed the beginning, in which case, start here).


The 2013 Cape Town Zombie Walk was an official event of the 2013 Horrorfest.
