“In 2010 however a bargain was struck that allows us to keep the curse at bay by choosing a new host for it every year. To that end we have devised the Tom Zombie contest, this year sponsored by CroCanada, where people use their best make-up talents, freakiest costumes and maniacal dramatic presences to vie to become the new Tom Zombie. That is followed by a Zombie Walk to St. Thomas City Hall and the transition ceremony where the artifact of power behind the curse, the Trimeric Bell, is passed over the new host.”
Dotsy’s will be there with their bouncy castle, face painters and more, the band Social Stone, will be playing sets throughout the day, local celebrities will be on hand for pictures and autographs, and there will be a number of interesting vendors and exhibits that alone are worth stopping by for. “Plus you never know who will turn up to entertain’” says Bakker. “Festivals like this are a magnetic for spectacle and we expect, and encourage, them to all to come out and show their stuff once again this year.”
And last but not least, for only $8, you can enter the Terminus Tour, sponsored by rtraction and developed by Sin Labs. The Terminus Tour is set to be a very exciting piece to this year’s festival. For those familiar with the Walking Dead season ender its known that the heroes of the drama ended up captives in a railway station. Sin Labs is going to make a haunted tour based on that story arc that Bakker expects to be, “Very cool indeed.”
