Zombie flash mob takes over Federal Way Farmers Market

It was a “Thriller” performance on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Post-apocalyptic zombies sure know how to get their groove on.

Federal Way locals, dressed up in costume as zombies and other ghoulish guises, performed Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance on Saturday, Oct. 26.

A large crowd gathered to view the spooky show mid-morning at the Federal Way Farmers Market, the final weekend of the year that wrapped up the market’s 16th season.

Anna Patrick, a longtime Federal Way resident, organized the flash mob earlier in the fall.

“I decided to organize the event because I thought it was a fun way to bring the community together to do something light and fun,” she told the Mirror.

Patrick has participated in Thrill The World Seattle for the past three years. She, and her husband Craig Patrick, procured some prizes from local establishments for the adult and kids costume contests at the market.

The couple also facilitated some rehearsal dance classes at Federal Way Fitness, who donated studio space for the practices.

The Federal Way Farmer’s Market will host the Candy Cane Lane Holiday Gift Bazaar in late November and throughout December. Located in the former Victoria’s Secret store at the Commons Mall, the holiday market will boast holiday gifts, decor, and handmade items.

Candy Cane Lane will be open weekends from Nov. 29-Dec. 1, Dec. 6-8, Dec. 13-15, and Dec. 16-22.
