Dalton Park’s Christmas Crackathon Supports Kids in Need

Here’s a fun world record attempt that’s just perfect for the holidays. This weekend Dalton Park Shopping Centre is getting shoppers together for its Crackathon.

We’re not sure about that name, but the event’s heart is in the exact right place. The record attempt is for the most people simultaneously pulling Christmas crackers, and Dalton Park hopes to have the biggest cracker pull ever. With luck and help from Real Radio, it will get together 1500 people organized into pulling groups.

As the groups gather, Dalton Park will collect donations for Hope4Kidz, a non-profit that supports the well-being of youngsters who require various degrees of extra care, whether they are suffering from a physical or mental disability, living with a serious or prolonged illness, or need respite from poverty or abuse.

At 6 p.m. the Crackathon countdown will begin, culminating in a great big crack. With that cathartic event under their belts, shoppers will get to enjoy Santa’s big Christmas light switch on and a fantastic fireworks show. The shopping center will also stay open a bit later than usual for festive shoppers to enjoy their holiday shopping.
