Soul Train fans gathered in New York's Times Square over the weekend to boogie down in a tribute to the show's creator Don Cornelius.

About 100 people participated in Saturday's "flash mob" event, where Soul Train fans wearing afro wigs and bell bottoms recreated a popular segment of the show in which people took turns dancing toward a TV camera while showing off their most outrageous moves.

Fans in attendance said it was the best way they could pay tribute to the legendary Cornelius, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound last week at age 75.
