guinness press small

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY—The nonprofit group Walkway Over the Hudson hosted County Executives Mike Hein and Marc Molinaro, as well as hundreds of people who came out to lend a hand, and set an unofficial world record at Walkway State Historic Park. With a count of 872 people witnessed simultaneously popping bubble wrap, Walkway almost nearly doubled the record of 532 previously set in March of this year by the Bramley Church of England Primary School in Bramley, Hampshire, UK. The sound of popping echoed throughout the bridge as participants celebrated the opportunity to learn about Walkway’s commitment to bridging communities, and enjoy one of New York State’s most lively parks on a beautiful Sunday morning.
