McFadden Macarena

The Košice Forum, a Košice based foundation chaired by Peter Mcfadden best known for its annual outdoor skating rink, is undertaking its biggest project yet. It is planning on setting a new Guinness World Record for the world's largest dance. The spectacle will be held on Friday May 9 in Košice. Cincinnati, Ohio holds the current record when 48,000 people danced the chicken dance in 1994. The Košice Forum hopes to get 49,000 people out on the main street doing the macarena. The dance will begin at 8:00 p.m. and participants are expected from all over.

"It's the best opportunity to show off Košice's wonderful reconstructed main street to the world," said Mcfadden. " It's a big street and it needs a big idea. The worlds largest dance will be a big success for a growing city." To participate, you are required to have a ticket which can be obtained by calling the Košice Forum at 095 622 2466.
