They were dressed as Shrek and Cartman from South Park, Barbie and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz – just about any character you can imagine.

Most of the 2,300 students at the Orange County School of the Arts participated Tuesday in the annual campus Halloween competition and flash mob dance.

The school has been running the event for more than 20 years.

Students can participate in the costume contest and compete for the scariest, funniest, most creative, and best group costume.

“Halloween is our day for our students to shine,” said Julia Gutierrez, the school’s director of public relations. “They really express their creativity.”

Students also spend weeks learning a choreographed routine to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” which they perform at the end.
