Thriller Dance excites audience in downtown La Crescent



A scary assortment of zombies and other monsters took over an intersection in La Crescent on Sunday night, and spectators loved it.

The 3rd Annual Thriller street dance performance took place around 6 p.m. on Main Street, outside the Quillin’s store.

About 30 dancers in a variety of spooky costumes performed the dance from the Michael Jackson “Thriller” video twice, led by organizer Meagan Waddell, who wore Jackson’s red jacket from the video.

Waddell was inspired when living in Lexington, Kentucky, where they have thousands of dancing zombies.

“This is just a little something that I thought I would do to give back to our community here in La Crescent, where my husband and I were really lucky to raise our kids,” Waddell told Classic Hits 94.7.  

Spectators surrounded the intersection to watch the dance, cheering, applauding, and taking home videos.
