But not actual bite, hopefully. Taking place across Kilkenny this October Bank Holiday weekend, Thrillkenny is a 2 night festival that promises to be one to 'dismember'. Between Saturday October 27th and Sunday October 28th, festival goers will be able to take part in a “Thrill The World” Global Thriller Dance World Record, go to Thriller Dance Workshops with Fringe Festival favourites Ponydance, and have professional make-up artists zombie them up for a Zombie Walk through the city while zombified street performers from Cork Circus and more entertain the masses. And best of all? It's free. Yes, you read that right, free. Gratis. Saor in aisce. So no excuse to be boring this Halloween weekend.
"Thrill The World" is a yearly worldwide international Michael Jackson dance, with global Thriller/Zombie dance fans uniting to do classic Thriller moves en masse and try and break the world record. And after, you can head to one of the many zombified bars and clubs in the city, including the Dead Disco. Intrigued? You can find out more over on the Thrillkenny website: thrillkenny.com and keep up to date with all the zombie goings on at facebook.com/ThrillkennyZombiefest.
