Worlds Longest Conga Line

While waking up this morning, feeling like I needed to go online and find a hurricane tracker to discover if we were going to still be in Utah or if our state was blown down to Texas overnight (if you live in Utah, you know what I'm talking about, and I know that we cannot actually have a hurricane), I discovered a little useless trivia that's out on The Net (really, I know it doesn't take much to "discover" the plethora of useless trivia online)...

There's word that the longest Conga line was created at Lollapalooza this month.

Dan Deacon, a name synonymous with the one man band, at this year's Lollapalooza, "organizes the festival’s longest conga line, which snakes its way through a tunnel of upraised arms around the northern half of Hutchinson Field. Ain’t no party like a Dan Deacon party. Best set of the festival so far."

Actually, even though that sounds like a lot of fun, "Calle Ocho earned an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records when 119,986 people formed the world’s longest conga line on March 13, 1988." LynxLee

For some 1988 may fire sirens off of being ages ago. However, to those of us who graduated from high school in the Chicago (Lollapalooza) area, it burns in memory like just reminiscent of yesterday.
