The Zombie Thriller dance is an annual event and although it is a worldwide event preformed to raise money for charities, it just recently started in Ajijic in 2010, thanks to the expats and locals getting together and organizing such a fun even in which money raised goes to charities, one being the Red Cross. Weeks of practice is put into the Zombie dance before the event even takes place and all ages participate, including your children who dance along with their parents and friends.
In previous years the dance used to be held at the Ajijic plaza. The participants starting increasing and needed more space, so since 2019 it has been moved to the Ajijic Malecon and recently to the Basketball Courts on the the Ajijic Malecón, just west of the skate park.
The dance lasts about 6 minutes but so much more time, effort and makeup is put into it, not to mention the various costumes the participants put together. It usually starts at 3pm, but make sure you come as early as possible to get some pictures of the Zombies and a good spot in front since a crowd gathers quickly around the event, leaving you without a clear view when the dance starts.
