guinness world record - walkway over the hudson

On Saturday, May 4th, the nonprofit organization Walkway Over the Hudson is going for a second Guinness World Record. Last year the Walkway organization broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest line of dancers doing the Hokey Pokey with over 2,500 participants.

This year, May 4 is New York’s I Love My Park Day and all participants will receive “I Love New York” t-shirts provided by the New York State Tourism Department. But to beat the record, they’ll need more than 1,700 people of all ages to complete some simple steps in unison to the “I Love New York” jingle.

Participants can register online at Registration will cost $15 per person and special group rates are also being offered. The event will be held on Saturday, May 4, with a rain date to be announced only if severe weather forces the closure of the Walkway.

The world record event will be broadcast live on May 4 on Cumulus Broadcasting’s WEOK (1390 AM). As with last year’s world record attempt, Walkway volunteers and participants will bring radios to the event tuned in to WEOK/1390 AM to help broadcast the song simultaneously along the entire mile-long line of participants.
