When you live in Mexico, you get use to festivals that are fun and huge. This one should be no different! August 27th will be the 1st Annual Salsa Festival put on by the city of Puerto Peñasco. Beside having a great time and listening to some of the best SALSA music, we will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most amount of people dancing to Salsa music at one time and in one place.
Mind you the end of August will still be toasty and humid, but hey, let’s get ourselves off the couch and go down to the Plaza de Governors for this great event. Attire is casual and I am sure there will be food and drinks available, but bring lots of water to stay hydrated as you shake your “Booty”. Don’t know how to dance to Salsa music? Watch our video and learn where to place your feet and the movements of the hips and feet. This gives 30 days to get this down.
If you are coming from outside of Puerto Peñasco Mexico I am sure many of you have taken those classes at Fred Astaire Dance Studios or somewhere, so don’t be shy, no one will laugh at you if you have 2 left feet. The object is to break the world record. After doing a little research it appears that in Greece in 2014 they had 1102 people dancing Salsa for 7:16 minutes and Cuba in 2015 had over 900 people dancing for 15 minutes. OK so it will be toasty, but we have “ SALSA SPIRIT”. If we get all those Toma Color runners out here plus our local dancers as well as tourists … I think we can do this.
The event is FREE to all. It will start at 7:00 pm.
