NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – This year’s Virginia Children’s Festival in Norfolk is hoping to make history with the largest “Baby Shark” dance party.
Get ready to have the tune stuck in your head again. At least this time, it’s for a good, possibly historic, reason.
The event coordinator at Festevents says they are trying to break the Guinness World Record of just over 1,000 participants at the 31st Virginia Children’s Festival at Town Point Park.
The current record was set this July by the K-Days Music Festival in Canada (though technically a lot more than 1,000 people get up for “Baby Shark” every time Gerardo Parra goes to bat for the Washington Nationals.)
The Hurrah Players will lead the two, that’s right, two, dance parties on the WHRO Public Media Lights! Camera! Action! Stage on Saturday, October 5.
The first dance party will be grooving at 11:50 a.m. with the second one at 2:15 p.m.
Dance participants of all ages are encouraged to wear their favorite Baby Shark-inspired outfits for the event.
Tickets for this year’s Virginia Children’s Festival can be found at Festevents’ website.
