Keystone Resort announced today that the ski resort is attempting a Guinness Book of World Records title. On Saturday, Oct. 19, the resort will host an event at Minneapolis’ famed Mall of America with the goal of breaking the World Record for “Most People Dancing with Hula Hoops.”
Joined by two-time Olympian Kaylin Richardson, a Minnesota native, Keystone will gather kids of all ages and their families, for dancing with hula hoops to the “Hokey Pokey” in hopes of breaking the hula hoop record.
The record attempt will take place at the Mall on the second day of the annual Minnesota Ski and Snowboard Expo. Keystone will attempt to break the current record of 637 people dancing with hula hoops, a title held by a school in Sydney, Australia.
Prizes and giveaways will occur throughout the event, which will begin with registration at 7 a.m., followed by the record attempt beginning at 8 a.m. in the North Parking Lot at the Mall of America. Those interested in joining the event can sign up online at http://keystonehulahoopworldrecord.eventbrite.com.
Following the record attempt participants can join Keystone inside the Mall for the Ski and Snowboard Expo. Admission and parking at the Expo are free, and attendees will enjoy great deals on lift tickets and passes as well as a trampoline show in the Mall rotunda.
Keystone plans to begin snowmaking efforts Oct. 15, and following the record attempt on Oct. 19 the resort will open for the season on Nov. 1.
