We are thrilled to announce that we received Ottawa Tourism’s Partnership of the Year at last evening’s 2014 Awards Gala; an award shared with the Haunted Walk Ottawa, the Bytown Museum and Ottawa Jail Hostel. During the Halloween season, the Haunted Walk offered three unique tour options with its partners, including our Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure. These hair raising tours attract new and younger audiences to our facilities and present heritage interpretation in an altogether new light.
Our thanks to the Haunted Walk for submitting the nomination and for working with us to offer these ghoulish tours.
Thanks too to the amazing staff at the Diefenbunker for all of the extra effort that goes into the planning and implementation of this program.
And finally, a huge thank-you to our amazing team of volunteer zombies; over 60 of the most dedicated undead we have ever had the pleasure of working with! Much of the success of this program is owed to you.
Notably, we were also a finalist for this award for our partnership with One World Dialogue and the programming around our Building Peace exhibition. We are so proud to work with such amazing partners in our community.
Congratulations to all and here’s to more hair raising zombie tours this Fall!
