Come on baby, let's set a record

This Saturday, October 16, an attempt will be made to set the world record for the most people simultaneously dancing the Twist at one time.

The originator of the dance craze, Chubby Checker himself, will be on hand along with officials from the Guinness Book of World Records to oversee the event at 2 p.m. at Fox Park (Ocean Avenue between Montgomery & Burk, directly across from the Wildwoods Convention Center).

This weekend, the seventh annual Fabulous 50s Weekend will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Twist, first introduced by Checker at the famous Rainbow Club in 1960.
