Canobie zombies take road trip to Boston

SALEM — Hundreds of “zombies” from Canobie Lake Park Screeemfest staged a monster flash mob at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston Friday.

Zombies, monsters and ghouls marched stiff-legged toward the market’s West End as the sound of eerie dance music was heard throughout the historic marketplace.

Choreographed in unison, the monsters began to dance to the spine-tingling beat. The performance wowed spectators for more than three minutes and culminated with the sound of electric shocks as the zombies twitched in their final throes of the dance.

Then, as quickly as they arrived, they were gone, back on the buses, back to Canobie Lake Park in Salem.

The “zombie flash mob” was a joint effort between Canobie Lake Park and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

“Both of our organizations are committed to reinventing ways to entertain our visitors and guests,” said Chris Nicoli, Canobie Lake Park’s marketing and entertainment manager. “We have a great partnership with Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and together we developed a Halloween-themed event that was both exciting and current. Canobie Lake Park Screeemfest, running weekends throughout the month of October, provided the resources allowing us to assemble a huge cast of ‘monsters and zombies’ and present a performance in the heart of Boston that everyone could enjoy.”

Screeemfest continues each weekend through Oct. 28. Scream in five terrifying haunted houses or on Canobie’s newest thrill ride, Equinox.
