Lancashire could soon be the holder of a world record attempt with a difference.

This Side Of The River takes place on Saturday, June 28 in Ryelands Park, Lancaster and has been organised by the Friends of Ryelands Park, Lancashire County Council and The Dukes.

Members of the public are being invited to take part in an attempt breaking the world record for the longest fake moustache and welly-wearing conga line.

Although here at LEP Towers we’re unsure there’s an existing category for the coveted record.

The Mass Participation World Records list the Most Santas skating in a Conga Line, set by 142 bearded men and women at Warwick Castle 2009.

A year earlier, in Devon, the Longest Conga of People Wearing Wellies world record was set by 208 students and staff from Bicton College wearing waltzers.

The attempt combining wellies and moustaches is part of a community event to celebrate Skerton, Ryelands and Vale past, present and future.

There will also be giant mobile puppets, a Batala drum band, eight geodomes and a digital treasure hunt.

Live music will be performed on the Lancaster Music Festival stage, showcasing young people from across the district.

The geodomes, which are wicker structures, will reflect the area, its people and the park itself and are being created by Skerton High School, which closes this summer, and the Friends of Ryelands Park.

The Friends will also be leading other creative sessions in acentral marquee to help decorate the wellies and produce the fake moustaches needed for the conga line.

Black Beard Media has produced an app which can be downloaded for those wishing to take part in the digital treasure hunt which will lead people through the park with clues about the history of the area and other fun facts.

Anyone interested in getting involved with This Side Of The River, should contact Jay Walton at The Dukes on 01524 598522 or email jwalton@dukes-lancaster.org.
