Visitors on Cavendish Beach got a musical surprise recently when Parks Canada organized a flash mob.

The unexpected outbreak of music and choreographed dancing was recorded and posted on YouTube Thursday.

Dozens of participants danced to music by Island band Paper Lions.

The Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors group says the video was made to show young Canadians that national parks are a fun place to visit.

As of Saturday morning, the video has more than 9,000 views.
