In Pictures: Thrill the World Haida Gwaii

A record 29 zombies creeped, crawled, and boogied down to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at Spirit Square in Queen Charlotte on Saturday, Oct. 27 for Thrill the World Haida Gwaii.

From Finland to Mexico to Brazil, zombies around the globe all did the same terrifyingly fun dance, all at the same time.

Rumours of dance-rehearsing zombies spread islands-wide before the dance on Saturday. (Andrew Hudson/Haida Gwaii Observer)
