Photo: A new world record was set for the Book of Records at Calder Plaza. According to Ashley Abbott Bodien of Kids’ Food Basket, a total of 327 people assembled in Calder Plaza to set a new record for World’s Largest Cakewalk.
The previous world record was 280 people, set in August 2016 in Grainger County, Tenn.
The cakewalk involves participants walking around a path of squares in time to music, which plays for a duration and then stops. A number is then called out, and the person standing on the square with that number wins a cake.
Proceeds from the record cakewalk will benefit Kids’ Food Basket, a Michigan-based nonprofit organization that empowers communities to attack childhood hunger.
