Sadly the annual Zombie Walk for Kingston, ON was cancelled this year due to lack of funding.
Alas, when a door closes behind you, there is a whole new world in front of you. Local Ben Kent has jumped at the opportunity in this brave new world to begin a new Zombie Walk for the residents of the city of Kingston.
His reasons are simple and heart felt, the same as many participants in the annual Zombie Walk. It is tradition, it is something families can do together and, a heck of a lot of fun.
Here is the information thus far concerning the initiative to start a brand spanking new Zombie Walk for our community to participate in. It always amazes me when someone sees something that can be changed, and acts on it.
Please read and learn about the inspiration for, reasons behind and, why Kingston loves it’s annual Zombie Walk.

Well, undead, at least.

Last year, in the lead-up to Hallowe’en, it wasn’t Trick or Treating that got my girls excited; it wasn’t their Spider-Witch-Goddess costume, or their Dragon Princess – it was their “Zombie Family” costume, and they were eager to participate in the Zombie Walk. And the year before, the week after Hallowe’en, my (at the time) 4-year-old was immediately asking, “Can we go on a Zombie Walk again?”. And last year, my 7-year-old made it her goal to win “Best Child Costume”, and proudly boasting about going to her friends at school.” Ben Kent

“In short: My kids want The Zombie Walk. That means I have to try. Plus, I’ve already heard from a score of adults, who are glad to see something at least trying to move forward and keep up the tradition.

While the previous admins commented on there being some sort of financial situation that prevented them from moving forward, I’ve taken it upon myself to find out what those difficulties are, and if it’s possible to overcome them. Unless it’s simply impossible, the Zombie Walk 2015 is going ahead!”Ben Kent

 HERO FEST is the perfect event for you and your kids to make some amazing memories!”Me.


Seems like for years I have begged to start a con in Kingston, ON and finally, someone beat me to it. That someone being David Wyldstar of Great Canadian Wrestling (GCW) fame, having a huge success with Oshawa’s first ever Comic Con in 2013, has started a new comic con HERO FEST here in Kingston, ON. Working along side Wyldstar is Kingston’s own talent, the Media Relations & Requests rep for HERO FEST and, deserved guest, Anthony D. P. Mann (Terror of Dracula, Sherlock Holmes and The Shadow Watchers, Phantom of The Opera). Cosplay and Panels are being directed by David Ross, a Cosplayer himself, Master Class costumer and Professional wrestler.

There is sincerely something here for every one. Horror fans will delight in the celebrity guests along with children who are fans of The Power Rangers. Cosplay for those who want to show off their inner spirit and, many vendors to get the perfect item to remember your day at HERO FEST.

Truly a great experience for the whole family and hopefully the beginning of a new tradition in Kingston. 



Featuring a huge Vendors room ~ an Artists Alley ~ a Panel room ~ a Screening Room ~ Autograph signings ~ Celebrity photo ops ~ a Karaoke area ~ a Live Wrestling event and an Outdoor Cosplay Photo Op area ! .
