Friday is the final chance for area residents to officially be a part of a record-breaking event at next week’s Tulip Time festival in Pella. So far, the number of registrants well exceeds the existing record for Dutch dancers in wooden shoes, but organizers are hoping to set a truly impressive benchmark for the 75th anniversary of Tulip Time.

Bonnie Verberg, Director of the Vermeer Mill and Pella Historical says there is a lot of buzz surrounding the record-breaking opportunity.

“I had some fifth grade kids in the other day from Pella Community Schools, and many of those children had signed up and many more were planning to,” said Verberg. “Yes, I think there’s a lot of excitement. When else do you get a chance to get your name in the Guinness Book of World Records?”

To register before Friday’s deadline, visit www.PellaTulipTime.com, or stop by the Vermeer Mill Interpretive Center during business hours to sign up.
