Wildflower students bring 'Thriller' to life
Halloween is just around the corner, and to get all the zombies primed and ready for the big night, approximately 100 students, staff and parents from the Wildflower, dressed as zombies, brought Michael Jackson’s Thriller to life Wednesday afternoon on Baker Street.
The flash mob performance, during the noon hour on Baker Street, was a hit with the lunchtime crowd as camera phones were clicking and videos were rolling to capture the performance from Wildflower, an alternative learning program of Kootenay Lake School District.
The performance comes on the heels of the first-ever Civic Theatre Society Zombie walk that saw more than a couple of hundred corpses revived by witchcraft come to life on the downtown core of the Heritage City Saturday.
Wildflower provides a multi-age learning environment that is personalized and challenges students to achieve their best personal results.
Wednesday, Wildflower students delivered a personal and thrilling show for the public.
Of course, Friday is the night when all the ghosts and goblins will be taking over the streets in Nelson.
