Zombies take over Manayunk in first annual ‘Thriller’ dance-off

Main Street in Manayunk was full of different creatures on Saturday for the annual Halloween Festival. They were ultimately outnumbered by packs of zombies descending on Main Street for the first zombie “Thriller” dance-off.

All Halloween Festival attendees, from princesses to dragons, got a chance to watch dedicated dance students and amateurs compete for prizes in the dance-off, set to Michael Jackon’s famous “Thriller.”

For those who wanted a more traditional fall festival experience there was a market and live music in Pretzel Park.
