On July 7, 2016, Murfreesboro will work to enter the Guinness Book of World Records. Thom Christy, who helps coordinate Uncle Dave Macon Day every year, told WGNS that he hopes to see 1,000 people square dancing on the local square...
Gloria Christy, President of Uncle Dave Macon Days, told WGNS that since the square dance is the official dance for Tennessee, it makes sense for the world record to belong to the state.
The free event on Thursday, July 7th will actually kick off this year's Uncle Dave Macon Days event that will take place on Friday, July 8th and Saturday, July 9th. 2016 Marks the 39th year for the annual event to take place. Uncle Dave Macon Days is held in the Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village.
