More than 500 people shimmied up a storm on Port Fairy’s Fiddler’s Green on Sunday in an attempt to break a record. The energetic bunch took part in the attempt to break the record for the largest Charleston as part of the Port Fairy Jazz Festival on the weekend. Festival committee member Catherine Huf said while the record remained intact, the response to the call for dancers exceeded all expectations. The record for the largest Charleston in the world is 1096 people. “It was a fabulous turnout and they were such a talented group of people,” she said. Participants had the chance to learn the popular dance during the week and there was a quick rehearsal before the record attempt. Ms Huf said while it was the first time the attempt had been held as part of the festival, it wouldn’t be the last. “We definitely got half way there,” she said. “We’ll do it all again next week.” On Saturday, dozens of jazz lovers lined Sackville Street to witness the festival parade. Committee member Catherine Huf said organisers were delighted with the turn out of both musicians and public for the parade. “It’s been a fantastic morning, we have a weekend ahead with heaps of jazz,” she said. The festival included a jam-packed line up of musicians over three days. “It’s been a huge success,” Mr Huf said. Have you signed up to The Standard’s daily newsletter and breaking news emails?
