A nearly full moon and mild weather attracted thousands of zombies and regular folks downtown Sunday night for Lexington's 14th annual re-creation of Michael Jackson's Thriller.
The event has grown so much that 1,200 zombies and six Michael Jacksons performed; last year, organizers estimated that 15,000 people lined both sides of Main Street.
This year, a short parade featuring March Madness Marching Band started the show before Albert Ignacio, a five-time Michael Jackson portrayer, emerged from The Kentucky Theater.
The event is helping to kick off the Breeders' Cup Festival, a series of events leading up to Friday and Saturday's championship races at Keeneland.
