Calling all zombies---
You can be part of an international effort to break the world record for the largest "Thriller" dance. The Charlotte Jaycees are organizing the "Thrill The World" event-- which will take place Saturday, October 23 at 7pm.
If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, show up at the Monster Mayhem Haunted House on Sunday, October 17 at 1pm to learn the dance. That's located in the Jolly-Cedar Plaza at 5140 S. Cedar Street in Lansing.
You can also learn the dance on the official "Thrill the World" web site at www.thrilltheworld.com.
There is no cost to participate--- but the Charlotte Jaycees are encouraging people to bring a food donation for the local food banks. Everyone who brings a donation will get a special "Scare Package".
"Thrill The World" was created in 2006 by Ines Markeljevic and has gotten bigger every year. Last year's celebration brought together 22,596 zombies in 32 countries, raising more than $85,000 for local charities.
