Well over 2500 people danced their way into the record books Saturday morning in Pella on the final day of the 2010 Tulip Time festival. The participants, wearing wooden shoes and performing a simple Dutch dance, surrounded the downtown square and beyond, holding the dance for five minutes. The official number of dancers who participated will have to be tallied and will later be released, but will surely be well in excess of the previous record of 475.
