Halloween Charity Thriller Street Dance



By I Love Limerick Correspondent Niamh Higgins

A Halloween Charity Thriller street dance as part of City of Culture 2014 and in aid of Focus Ireland the homeless charity will take place on Halloween, Friday October 31st at Arthurs Quay Park.

Focus Ireland invites you to be part of Limerick’s biggest ever street dance event. Monsters, Zombies, Vampires, Ghosts and Goblins, all are welcome!

Limerick is recreating Michael Jackson’s classic Thriller video, so put on your fancy dress and make this year a Halloween to remember.





The Thriller street dance and entertainment will take place from 7.30pm with the big show starting at 9pm. All ages are welcome to come and no level of dance ability is required. Don’t worry if you have two left feet, there will be dance instructors there on the night to teach everyone the moves!

From spooky music to a vintage carnival and even a Michael Jackson tribute performance by Barry Baz Burke of Limerick Hip Hop intervention project, there really is something for everyone!

Entry to the event will cost €5 and all proceeds will go directly to Focus Ireland. There will also be prizes for best costumes and discount entry to Dolans 90’s Party on the night.

The Halloween Charity Thriller Street Dance is part of the Halloween ‘Spooktacular’ taking place from Friday 24 October until Sunday 2 November in Limerick City.
