Event Day Schedule

10:30 Volunteers begin check-in to set up event space, tables, etc

11:00 Community Partners/Sponsors come in to set up their event expo area

11:00 Ben's Wish and Canned Food Drive sets up

11:30 Instructor Check-In 

12:00 Official Record Event Area Opens. We start allowing people to enter the event area and distribute bibs to participants. We have to film and capture everyone person entering, so when you enter the event area, you will have to show your bib to the camera.

We will allow Water Bottles into the event area, however we cannot allow alcoholic beverages or glass containers for safety/liability reasons. Also, because this has to be counted and measured accurately, once you enter the official record area, you must stay there until the record attempt has been completed (around 2:31). There are restrooms in the official event area, but again, once you enter, you must stay there until we finish. If even one person leaves the event area prior to the record attempt, we risk not qualifying for the record.

12:00 to 2:00 Preparty music by Brad Hunsader and Scene Events on the Windstream and Junior Achievement Stage. Announcements and giveaways throughout this time frame.

Scene Events is hosting a post event bash at "The Pub" (Formerly known as Screamin' Headbuzz and part of the Best Western Hotel) right next to the Resch Center (so within walking distance of Lambeau).

  • There will be a post event tent with music by DJ Nolan Scott of Scene Events
  • Dancing and probably some flash mob
  • Music kicks off around 5:00 in the tent area and we will be rocking and dancing until 10:00 (or maybe later).

So there you have it. Two great post event options. Since we are looking at nearly 5000 in attendance, we thought it best to provide a couple of destination options for you, your colleagues, friends, and participants.


Parking and Bus Schedule

The Lambeau Field lot on Ridge Rd will be closed the day of the event. Participants can park on the streets around Lambeau or in the overflow lots. We are encouraging people to park as if it was a home game as there should be ample parking around the stadium.

We will be offering 2 (yes TWO) buses to shuttle people between downtown Green Bay and Lambeau Field. Pickups from the downtown area will begin at 11:00 am and will pick people up in front of Hagemeister Park and also 11:05 in front of St. Brendan's Inn (there will be a sign for a Lambeau Pickup location). 

Buses will run every half hour, so 11 am, 11:30 am, 12:00, 12:30, 1:00, and last shuttle at 1:30. People will be dropped off at Lambeau Field in front of the Atrium entrance. Then, bus service will begin again at 2:30 and run every half hour from Lambeau to downtown Green Bay. buses will go from 2:30, 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, and last call at 5:00.

So there you have it. Two great post event options. Since we are looking at nearly 5000 in attendance, we thought it best to provide a couple of destination options for you, your colleagues, friends, and participants.


The Green Bay Park and Recreation Department in coordination with LIVE 54218 and other greater Green Bay community partners will attempt to set the Guinness Book World Record for Largest Zumba© Class. The record attempt will be made on September 14th, 2013, 2:00 pm, at historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI - the Saturday before Green Bay’s home opener. The attempt is aiming to have 10,000 participants and will be made in the Lambeau Field parking lot. The Zumba© Class will be 31 minutes long and will be led by Zumba© Certified Instructor Kari Merrill along with 100 other instructors and group leaders. This event is open to the public and will be appropriate for all age, skill, and experience levels as we look to put the Greater Green Bay area in the record books!

The Basics:

  • Record attempt will occur Saturday, Sept 14th, 2013 - 2:00 pm
    (The Saturday before the Green Bay home opener)

  • Class for the record attempt will be 31 minutes long

  • Class will be led by ZIN Licensed Instructor Kari Merrill (www.zumba.com

  • This is a FREE Event for all participants and open to the public

  • The Class will be fun and appropriate for all age, skill, and experience levels.

Volunteers and event coordinators will also be on hand to help participants, record/photograph the event, and assist with verifying the record attempt. Not only will this event help promote healthy and active lifestyles in the Greater Green Bay area, we also anticipate the event bringing in fans and participants from the surrounding area who wish to be part of record making history. The application for the World Record attempt has already been filed and accepted. Participants will also have an opportunity to print out a certificate of participation if a world record is successfully set.


The motivation for this attempt was to help promote healthy and active lifestyles to the Greater Green Bay area and to create an event that brought the community together in a celebration of exercise. The event accommodates participants of all fitness levels and also helps demonstrate that exercise can be a fun social experience. It is our hope that this event will inspire some to share their passion of exercise with others, consider a more active lifestyle, or adopt a routine of exercise and physical activity.

This is a FREE event. Participants will not be charged for entry to the event or any participation fees. All are welcome and invited. Also, this is an all ages and family friendly event. Bring your families, your friends, your neighbors, and your coworkers as we help break a World Record!

See you at Lambeau Field on Sept 14th!
