Do the ‘Mombies’ of Fairfield Give New Milford a Run for Their Money?
Every year on Halloween, the folks in New Milford do a flash mob version of "Thriller". But this year, we came across some serious competition, as the 'Mombies' of Fairfield try and take it to the next level.
It all started in New Milford as a safe trick or treat event, and now it's a New Milford tradition. The concept was started by Christine Teixeira, a former Radio City Rockette, who owns Jazzercise in New Milford. Each year since it's debut on the New Milford Green Christine's adaptation of the famous Thriller choreography is always a spectacle.
Now let me introduce you to the 'Mombies of Fairfield'. It's a group of about 40 moms who've put together a Halloween Dance to Donate event for the third year in a row. This spooky flash mob also makes a difference. Mombies Dance To Donate raises funds for breast cancer research though the Cancer Couch Foundation. Last year, the Mombies helped raise over $40,000, where every single dollar goes to cutting edge research.
Now the big question here is are the Mombies of Fairfield giving New Milford's flash mob a run for their money? Watch their latest viral video, then you decide.
