Another reason I love Portland...random and crazy things like this.

Coming up on October 26th, it's the 5th annual Thriller Throwdown, in Congress Square Park, Downtown Portland.

It's sort of like a flash mob, with a bunch of dancers in full costume and makeup performing the Michael Jackson classic.

Directly following the performance, there'll be a Halloween themed dance party!

If you're interested in participating, check out the event page on Facebook.

Check out video from last year's performance:
