2019 Thriller Zombie Crawl 2019 in Downtown Campbell
Friday, October 25, 2019 - 7:00pm
On the Friday immediately before Halloween, an undead curse falls upon Downtown Campbell and a horde of dancing zombies shuffle their way from one end of downtown to the other. This annual event is organized by Adira Dance and Costume in San Jose and features multiple performances of the Michael Jackson "Thriller" dance performed at numerous stops throughout the evening.
The Zombie Crawl will be from 7pm to 9pm. Zombies who want to dance "Thriller" will be meeting in costume at 6:45pm on the top level of the First Street Parking Garage (next to the Campbell Water Tower). The group will then wander through Downtown Campbell and perform the Thriller dance at a number of designated spots. If you just want to dress like a Zombie and drift through Downtown Campbell without being a part of the dance group, that's perfectly cool too!
Learn the Dance and be a Zombie
The best part about the annual Zombie Crawl is that everyone who wants to zombie up and learn the Thriller dance can join the fun. Adira Dance and Costume will hold weekly workshops to teach the dance at their shop in San Jose at 7pm every Wednesday night from September 4th leading up to the event.
