Flash mobs are a crowd-pleaser in downtown Waukesha.
Flash mobs are becoming a common occurrence in Waukesha. Zombies and high school orchestra performances have been spotted in the downtown area. And last weekend, the Waukesha Civic Theatre’s Candy Cane Tales and Holiday Carols cast performed the Christmas Can-Can at The Steaming Cup. A video of the recent flash mob has been posted on YouTube. Candy Cane Tales and Holiday Carols is performed through Sunday.
Did you see the surprise dance on Friday?
Every Friday night, hundreds (and thousands some weeks) come downtown Waukesha to participate during Freeman Friday Night Live, a weekly music event that is free throughout the downtown area. As the event has gained popularity, so has the random, unscheduled activities. On the opening night, local orchestra students conducted a flash mob. Another week, a lone dragon walked the streets. Last Friday, belly dancers put on a performance near The Steaming Cup. Steaming Cup owner Kerry MacKay posted this video on Youtube. And if you are coming downtown Waukesha this Friday, check out the Ordinary Heroes fundraiser benefiting the Aurora, CO, shooting victims.
Dance performed in the middle of the street to Michael Jackson’s popular hit song.
There was a zombie invasion in downtown Waukesha Friday night. OK, so not really a zombie invasion. But a local group demonstrated a flash mob during Freeman Friday Night Live. The group dressed up like zombies and performed a dance number to Michael Jackson’s thriller. The crowd surrounded on Main Street just west of the Five Points where the dance was taking place in the middle of the street by Enve Salon. Waukesha Patch caught part of the dance on video, but many thanks go out to Wendy Copeland from the Waukesha Business Improvement District who sent in many photos of the flash mob dance. If you have photos or video from the flash mob, upload them to this story as well to share with your neighbors and friends.
