The streets of Kidapawan City came alive when 15,230 dancers participated in the city’s attempt to set the record for the “largest samba dance” session in the world.
On July 10, 2018, the Guinness World Records published and confirmed that “the Largest samba dance has been achieved at an attempt organized by Kidapawan City Tourism in the Philippines.”
The dancers formed four rows, each measuring roughly 5 kilometers or 3.11 miles. To put this in perspective, that’s the length of 100 Olympic sized swimming pools!
The participants came from various sectors of the city and had to prepare for four months before the record attempt.
