Upcoming: Zombie Walk & Mangrove Hallows

October 22, 2012

The Bermuda Arts Centre at Dockyard (BACD) in conjunction with the Somerset Economic Empowerment Zone (SEEZ) will host the the Zombie Walk and Mangrove Hallows will take place in the Somerset Mangrove Bay Village on Saturday, October 27, 2012.

The Mangrove Hallows event will start at 11:00 a.m. with a band of fully costumed Zombies staggering from Grey’s Bridge to the Mangrove Bay Village. The Zombies will have previously completed pledge sheets in an effort to fundraise for The Arts Centre. Once in the Mangrove Bay area, Zombies will take residence on a number of business porches with a frothy brew; the remainder will be part of a wide variety of ghoulish games and children’s activities.

The Zombies will also be joined by other fully costumed devilish characters, also serving to turn Mangrove Bay into the ultimate ghoul town; children will be able to take photos with their favourite scary creature as well as enjoy the Mangrove Hallows family atmosphere.

Sandys Boat Club will invite all into their haunted house and in conjunction with their across-the-street neighbor, the SEEZ on the Prince Albert Lodge property, will offer a wide variety of family and children’s Halloween activities. Also, Mangrove Bay Beach will see its fair share of Halloween with The Great Pumpkin Race which will feature children racing in the water with a pumpkin.

Additionally there will be a scary sand sculpture contest on the beach. Country Squire will transform its outside patio in line with Halloween and Salt Rock Grill will feature professionally carved pumpkins as well as children’s games. There will also be a limited number of pumpkins for families to carve street side.

West End School and Somerset Primary will square off to see which school can have the most and best costumed students at the event – Island Restaurant Group as well as other Somerset businesses will donate fantastic prizes. Sandys 360 and Sandys Middle School will have their SAAL Academy M2 boys present to serve attendees in any way during the Haunted Hallows event. Haunted Hallows at Mangrove Bay will end with the Zombies doing Michael Jackson’s Thriller Dance and all costumed patrons participating in a street parade and group photo.

Parking will be at Watford Bridge, the field behind HSBC Mangrove Bay and the Old Bus Terminal off of Beacon Hill. The Zombie Walk begins at 11:00 a.m. at Grey’s Bridge. All events at Mangrove Bay Village start at 12 pm. All persons wishing to make the Haunted Hallows event even more exciting are asked to email artcentre@logic.bm or call 234 2809.
