Join us for a spooky and kooky, chillingly-thrilling community dance party on All Hallows’ Eve right here in Bellingham… It’s the 8th annual Thrillingham! And this year, all proceeds from the event are being donated to Lydia Place!

What is Thrillingham?

Each October, community members join and learn the dance moves to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, then come together to perform the routine on Halloween night dressed as zombies to support a local non-profit. This year, Lydia Place was selected as the donations recipient and we could not be more thrilled to benefit from this community event. And let’s be honest, we will never be over paying tribute to the late MJ.

Anyone interested in joining in on the fun is invited to attend weekly dance rehearsals held at Love to Move Studioz at 311 E. Holly Street. You will have the chance to showcase your SPOOKtacular moves at Thrillingham on October 31st, held at Maritime park at 8 pm.


There will be raffle tickets sold for $1 at the Wise Buys Thrift Store and The Bureau of Historical Investigation. Rumor has it that there will be some frightfully fantastic local prizes given away, plus all proceeds will go to Lydia Place, so buy in abundance and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Ciao Thyme – October 9, 2015:

We are reaching out to you NOW with a heartfelt invitation and an opportunity to support  a bridge between two organizations, Maher in India and Lydia Place in Bellingham, both with life affirming missions, committed to healthy living and ending poverty for the homeless and underserved in their respective communities.

Bellingham Business Journal – October 5, 2015:

The nonprofit Lydia Place is finishing a remodel of its transitional home, which houses up to eight single mothers and their children. A $230,040 grant from the City of Bellingham funded the remodel of the 26-year-old facility, taking care of maintenance issues that have long been put off. And now businesses and other organizations are furnishing and decorating the rooms through Lydia Place’s Adopt-A-Room program.
