Costume Dance Party 2:00 / Thriller Performance 3:00pm

Flashmobs all around town the week leading up to Halloween

Every year, World Dance for Humanity hosts Santa Barbara’s Thriller event, a FREE family-friendly dance party and performance. It's part of “Thrill the World,” a global event that happens each year on the Saturday before Halloween. On that day, about 100 dancing Zombies will rise up at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens, casting away inhibitions to create a SPOOKTACULAR community experience!


Proceeds from our Event Sponsors and donations go to the "Nicole Greenwood Rwanda Education Fund" and the Westside Boys & Girls Club.
