Check out the Hula Hoop Contest to break the Guinness Book of World Records presented by Keystone Resort - On Saturday, October 19, the resort will host an exciting event at Minneapolis’ famed Mall of America with the goal of breaking the World Record for “Most People Dancing with Hula Hoops.” Joined by two-time Olympian Kaylin Richardson, a Minnesota native, Keystone will gather kids of all ages and their families, for dancing with hula hoops to the “Hokey Pokey” in hopes of earning their place in history.
The record attempt will take place at the Mall on the second day of the annual Minnesota Ski and Snowboard Expo. Keystone will attempt to break the current record of 637 people dancing with hula hoops, a title held by a school in Sydney, Australia. Prizes and giveaways will occur throughout the event, which will begin with registration at 7 a.m., followed by the record attempt beginning at 8 a.m. in the North Parking Lot at the Mall of America. Those interested in joining the event can sign up online at http://keystonehulahoopworldrecord.eventbrite.com. Following the record attempt participants can join Keystone inside the Mall for the Ski and Snowboard Expo. Admission and parking at the Expo are free, and attendees will enjoy great deals on lift tickets and passes as well as an exciting trampoline show in the Mall rotunda.
Kaylin Richardson will be onsite with the hula hoop event and provide a short talk in the Rotunda following the contest. Saturday and Sunday at 1pm she will be doing autograph signing at the Afton Alps booth. A ten year veteran of the US Ski Team, Kaylin Richardson is a 2-time Olympian and 4-time National Alpine Champion. Since retiring from the World Cup in 2010, Kaylin has been exploring different avenues of the skiing spectrum. As Ambassador of Skiing at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah she has fallen deeper in love with skiing and, above all, enjoys sharing the beauty and adventure of the Wasatch Range with others. Still motivated to stretch herself as a skier, Kaylin has appeared in Warren Miller's Flow State and Ticket to Ride- playing now- representing Helly Hansen and Icelantic Skis. Now that Canyons is a member of the Vail Resorts family, Kaylin is extremely excited to ski all the EPIC terrain at every one of Vail's amazing locations. Kaylin is the first to admit that she is one of the luckiest people on the planet to call the mountains her playground as well as her office. Her life philosophy is "laugh often" and she plans to do so- all the way down the mountain until the end of her days.
