Set the World Record for Soul Train dancing

4/22/2017 - Set the World Record for Soul Train dancing

Museum visitors can set world record for Soul Train Dancing

Jump on the Peace Train!

Museumgoers in San Bernardino County love to dance. Once again, the San Bernardino County Museum will celebrate the opening of Train Days on Saturday, April 22, with a Soul Train dance and may break the Guinness World Record while doing so. Last year, the Museum missed the record by just 27 dancers.

Dancers of all ages are encouraged to jump on the peace train. Museum admission is free to dance participants between noon and the 1:30 pm start time. The first 500 dancers will receive a free T-shirt commemorating the world record attempt. To sign up visit the museums website,, and click on the Soul Train dance icon.

Museum members are invited to a free BBQ from 11 a.m. to 1 pm, hosted by the Redlands Noon Kiwanis Club. Memberships will be available for purchase at the door. Our members love Train Days. If youre not already a member, now is the time to join, said Maggie Latimer, the Associations executive director. Members enjoy a full year of free admission to the Museum, invitations to special events, and being part of the Museum family. For more information, call 909-798-8625 or visit the museums website.

Even though we didnt break the Soul Train dance record last year, we had great time, said Museum Director Melissa Russo. Just imagine hundreds of people, some in costume, dancing through the Museum courtyard. It was fantastic! We are confident we will break the record this year.

County Supervisor Curt Conductor Hagman is a major sponsor of this years Train Days, which runs daily from April 22 through April 30 (closed Monday, April 24). Both weekends will feature family activities, a train talk, and food trucks.
