Prior to the Thriller dance will be a Halloween parade featuring ghosts, ghouls, superheroes, villains and costumed characters of all kinds. Both the parade and Thriller re-enactment will start at Quality and Main streets and proceed down Main Street ending at Mill Street. The dance will occur repeatedly along the route.

This event, which has been named a top 10 Halloween destination by USA Today, is brought to you by Lexington Parks & Recreation, Mecca Live Studio and WRFL.”

If rain occurs, the parade will be pushed to Sunday, October 30, 2016.
