Big love & squishy hugs for all who braved the weather at Piedmont Park Arts Festival for our Guinness World Records Hula Hoop Attempt! So proud of my community for showing up and spreading the word. While we didn’t quite beat the record, we had an amazing time. Given the poor weather, I think we did an outstanding job!
Thank you all! Check out the video!

Be sure to join us next year for the Piedmont Park Arts Festival where we will try to beat this record again!
We’ve got even more colored polypro hoops from Superhooper coming to our store! Choose from 11 different colors starting in September through HoopEssence online & in Atlanta.
