It was way before midnight, but thrilling nonetheless! Downtown Lexington was packed Sunday evening for the annual Thriller parade.

Thousands showed up, and many people wore Halloween costumes. There was a variety of characters in attendance, from Harry Potter to the cast of HBO series Game of Thrones.

Infamous villains from horror movies also walked in the parade, which warmed crowds up for the much anticipated Thriller performance that followed.

People tell WKYT that they had a fun night getting into the Halloween spirit.

"It's awesome. Great people, everybody's having fun, some awesome costumes, a lot of the kids are dressed up," said one man dress as a scary clown named Calypso.

"My favorite part about Halloween is just like, spooking people out and like giving them candy and being all together," said a 7-year-old girl who dressed up as a member of the Lollipop Guild, as a part of her family's horror take on The Wizard of Oz.

If you were inspired by the parade or performance, you can volunteer to participate next year. Performers started practicing at the start of October.
