According to Erin Renee, event organizer for Thrill the World Bishop, Thrill the World Bishop is hosting the annual Simultaneous Thriller World Dance on Saturday, October 30 at Bishop City Park.
The dance will take place at 3 p.m. sharp at Bishop City Park in front of the Bandstand, just south of the Visitor Center. Dancers must arrive before 2:30 p.m.
“Look for the zombies!” organizers said.
There will also be a special appearance at the Trunk or Treat event at the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds later the same day. Exact location and time to come.
Each year, Thrill the World hosts a global event inviting Thriller bands in cities around the world to perform Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at the same time.
Thrill the World has been represented in 32 countries on six continents by more than 23,000 dancers.
