During the 31st Annual Virginia Children’s Festival at Norfolk’s Town Point Park this Saturday, October 5, Norfolk Festevents and festival-goers will try to break the Guinness World Record for most people participating in a “Baby Shark” dance party in one place.

The Hurrah Players will orchestrate the dance party twice during the festival on the WHRO Public Media Lights! Camera! Action! Stage at the park. The first performance is scheduled for 11:50 a.m., and the second will take place at 2:15 p.m.

Guests of all ages – yes, that means you, too, parents – are encouraged to wear their favorite “Baby Shark”-inspired attire for the two performances.

The current world record was set by the K-Days Music Festival in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on July 21. It featured more than 1,000 participants.
