HELP US BREAK A WORLD RECORD! Join the Piedmont Park Arts Festival as they partner with HoopEssence in their attempt to break the world record for longest chain of people to pass a hula-hoop. Can’t hula hoop? Not a problem! There is no hula hooping skill required in order to be a park of the world record attempt. Almost everyone has done a hula-hoop pass like this before in school or camp. If you haven’t, we promise it’s easy!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We will create a large circle of people around the Active Oval at Piedmont Park. Everyone will hold hands as the hula-hoop is passed from person to person. The trick is to step through the hula hoop with one leg, pass is over your own head, step through with the other leg and pass it along to the next person without breaking the chain. There tends to be a lot of laughter involved when doing this pass.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Registration to participate in the world record attempt will take place at the HoopEssence booth at the festival on Saturday, August 17th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The attempt will take place at 4:00 PM at the Active Oval. Instructions will be provided upon registration. Participants are asked to give a small donation (about $2) in order to participate and must be 8 years or older. Proceeds from the attempt will be donated to Embraced Atlanta.
Join HoopEssence after the world record attempt for an all ages hoop jam in the park! Bring your own hoop or borrow one from us. For more information about the record attempt and the Piedmont Park Arts Festival please visit www.piedmontparkartsfestival.com.
