By | February 8, 2015

Blue Mountains breaks Charleston world record – again. The Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath hosted another historic milestone when 360 costumed dancers high kicked their way into history to smash their own Guinness World Record at the launch of the annual Roaring 20s Festival and all that Jazz on Saturday, February 7.

In the flamboyant yet elegant style of legendary former Hydro owner Mark Foy, the Blue Mountains Charleston Challenge and the following Majestic Long Lunch attracted hundreds of chicly-draped visitors.

The day began with the Blue Mountains Charleston Challenge on the lawns when 360 dancers aged from three to 92 and dressed in 1920s-style costume broke the Guinness World Record for the greatest number of costumed people to dance the Charleston. The event set the record with 276 in 2013, 319 in 2014 and aimed for 350 in 2015.

After the dance challenge, 170 guests indulged in decadent local fare at the Majestic Long Lunch in the Majestic Ballroom.
