2015 Thriller & Halloween Parade


Thriller Parade

Voted a Top 10 Halloween destination by USA Today, zombies will return to haunt downtown Lexington once again!

The evening will kick-off at 6:30 p.m. with a dance showcase, fall foods and Halloween festivities at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza. 

Prior to the Thriller dance, will be a Halloween parade featuring ghosts, ghouls, superheroes, villains and costumed characters of all kinds. If you are interested in having an entry in the parade, download the parade application here. You may also contact Amber Luallen at (859) 288-2925.

This year marks the 14th anniversary of the annual live performance of Michael Jackson’s groundbreaking video for Thriller. The Thriller dance will start at Quality and Main streets and proceed along Main Street ending at Mill Street. The dance will occur repeatedly along the route.

In the event of inclement weather, this event will take place on Monday, October 26, at the same time.
