What's happening in Vancouver? Thrill Vancouver: Michael Jackson "Thriller' themed flash mob

Calling all zombies and Michael Jackson lovers, it’s getting close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in Vancouver! On October 26th, at 4pm sharp, the undead are taking over the Yaletown Roundhouse to dance up a storm for Vancouver’s annualThriller Dance!

Anyone old, young, dead or alive is invited to participate in the yearly dance routine that always draws a huge crowd.


Thrill Vancouver is a part of “Thrill the World“, an event that first began in Toronto as an attempt to set a Guinness World Record. Since then, the flash mob that consisted of only 62 dancers has evolved into one of the world’s largest simultaneous dance events. Last year, almost 10,000 people from around the world participated. This year, could the record be broken?

If you are interested in participating, this year’s event is also offering three rehearsals that anyone is invited to attend. There is one today, as well as on October 22nd, andOctober 25th.

On the day of the event, make-up students from Blanche MacDonald will be on hand to transform you into your ghoulish alter ego. Cost of makeup includes admission to the event (regularly $5-10). Prices range from $10 for basic Zombie face Make-Up (eg. pale face/ sunken cheeks), $20 for basic + 1 small prosthetic (eg. gunshot or bite with some blood), and $40 for full Zombie face Make-Up + 2 prosthetics (eg. large laceration, cheek bone showing or gushing/ ripped open neck as examples).
