Thriller Reenactment and Halloween Parade

A beloved Halloween tradition in Lexington is the annual Thriller performance and parade that happen downtown.

The event starts on October 25th from 4-8 with an art market in the courthouse plaza.

The parade starts at 6:30, when ghouls and goblins of all ages are invited to show off their costumes on a route down Main Street, starting at Quality Street and Mills. You do need to register in advance if you want to march, but it’s free for individuals and groups.

The feature attraction of the event is the Thriller reenactment that happens at the end of the parade. Hundreds of professional zombies perform Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller dance together in the streets, as parade onlookers watch from the sidelines.

You can even participate as a zombie, for a $15 fee. Imagine how fun it would be rolling up to the parade with your friends, in a limo full of zombies.

Costume parties, trick-or-treating, and haunted houses are all part of the fun of Halloween. With these festive activities, you can truly get in the spirit of the holiday. However, if you want to spend Halloween seeing what you can get into in Lexington, Kentucky, there’s a fun and safe solution. With a vehicle from Goldshield, you can put your Halloween party on wheels, and create the party that everyone will talk about for years.

Hire a Limo

With room for you and nine of your closest friends, a stretch limo is the perfect way to enjoy an adult Halloween party. Inside, you’ll find a premium sound system with a CD player and iPod capable of getting the group pumped up, while the DVD player and three LCD televisions let you watch your favorite Halloween-themed film. Huge coolers and champagne buckets provide you with ice-cold drinks, while fiber optic lighting adds to the ambiance. Plus, if you decide to dress up, there’s no better way to arrive at a party, bar, or Lexington’s famous Halloween parade then getting out of a limo dressed like Frankenstein.

Take All Your Friends With a Shuttle Bus

If you can’t decide on just nine friends to take with you, a shuttle bus is the best bet for your Halloween needs. With room for 35 people, you can party in style with friends, family, and maybe even some people you meet along the way. To get the party jumping, you can go with the available XM radio, or use Bluetooth to play your own jams.
