    Oakland Eyes Guinness World Record for Biggest "Soul Train" Line

    Oakland dancers will try to get in the Guinness Book of World Records for executing the biggest "Soul Train" style dance line next month. 

    The "Soul Train" line was a consistent feature of the dance and music-driven television series that ran from 1971 to 2006, a time for stars-in-the-making to show up and show out.

    The Post News Group noted that organizers of OakTrain expect at least 500 people to join the effort, which is scheduled to take place at Oakland's DeFremery Park (1651 Adeline Street) on June 20.

    All are welcome, with the stipulation that registrants have enough stamina to dance for at least three hours. Admission is $5 to $10, with some of the proceeds going to the Friends of DeFremery Park nonprofit.
