Hundreds dance to "Thriller" in events across Santa Barbara County

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - The undead danced in unison during multiple Michael Jackson tributes across the globe and throughout Santa Barbara County on Saturday and Sunday.

Jackson's iconic song "Thriller" has become an unofficial theme song for Halloween.

On Saturday, World Dance for Humanity organized a performance at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens with hundreds of zombie dancers performing for a huge crowd. On Sunday, the group again planned to dance at Neverland Ranch, Jackson's former home in the Santa Ynez Valley.

More dancers filled the Apple Store on State Street in Santa Barbara to show off their ghostly dance moves.

Similar "flash mobs" and parties have been held throughout the nation as the calendar draws closer to Halloween.
