Police in downtown Vancouver watched helplessly from the sidelines Saturday afternoon as an army of the living dead gathered en mass to search for nourishing human brains.

Well, almost.

On the south side of the Vancouver Art Gallery at 750 Hornby Street, participants gathered for the Vancouver Zombie Walk — a growing annual event that has become known as the New Years celebration of the Goth community.

“We are protesting human stupidity,” parade marshal Ashton Green said Saturday. “We are protesting all the things that will lead to an apocalypse – zombie or otherwise.”
