Organizations lace up shoes to beat world record

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Several organizations in Wichita Falls want you to come out to help break a world record.

The Fallstown Dancing through History will incorporate downtown, Sheppard Air Force Base, and Midwestern State students all to break the world record of the largest crowd of couples dancing at one time and raise money for the Meals on Wheels program.

Marketing and development director for The Kitchen, Pam Hughes said the idea to hold a citywide dance came a few years ago but it was never done.

Now the organizations are encouraging everyone to lace up their shoes and beat the current world record that was done in Hungary a few years ago.

"We need 6000 people," said Hughes.  "We want you to show up to dance.  "You only have to dance for 5 minutes and then the rest of the night is just a celebration of our community."

The big dance will be happening downtown on Ohio street on Saturday.

If you are worried about parking, there will be buses set up at the MPEC to take you downtown.

If there is a chance for rain, the dance will be moved to D.L. Ligon Coliseum at MSU.

The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and dancing at 7 p.m.
