Want to help recreate Jackson’s ‘Thriller’?

Have you ever watched one of the many re-creations of Michael Jackson’s famous “Thriller” scene on YouTube and thought it looked like fun?

Now is your chance to dress up as a zombie and perform the famous dance to Thriller in front of a large crowd during the Mountain Heritage Festival Parade in September.

Whitesburg resident Roy Crawford is hosting an informal meeting at 6 p.m. on August 13 at the R.R. Crawford Engineering building in Whitco to get an idea of how many people would be interested in learning the choreography and performing in the parade.

“I just thought it would be nice for the festival,” said Crawford. “It would be fun to do. I’m just trying to get the whole thing kicked off.”

Crawford said everyone is welcome to dance and he would like for children and adults to participate.

The group will meet once a week until the parade to practice. Participants are responsible for coming up with their costumes.

“I’m not even a Michael Jackson fan,” said Crawford. “I don’t even own any of his music. I think he was a wonderfully talented guy.”
