New World Record Set at Trecco Bay

Elvis Impersonators at Trecco Bay Last weekend saw the biggest Elvis Festival in the world descend on Porthcawl, Wales.

During the festival, our own Trecco Bay Holiday Park got involved, hosting a weekend of Rock ‘n’ Roll entertainment in honour of ‘The King’, including performances by some of the best Elvis impersonators around; Lee Jackson and Darren Jones.

The weekend also included a world record attempt for the largest number of Elvis impersonators ton gather in one place, organised by Love2Walk. The previous record was held by 645 Nike employees who gathered in Las Vegas in November 2010.

We are delighted to say that the world record was SMASHED at Trecco Bay at the weekend, with 814 Elvis impersonators dusting off their Blue Suede Shoes to gather at the holiday park to create history, and show off their finest Elvis dance moves!

An array of Elvis costumes including gold lame, Vegas and leather jumpsuits and GI uniforms adorned the streets of Trecco Bay with fans travelling from all parts of the UK, Ireland, Germany, Malta and even Brazil with ages ranging from three to 80 to help break the world record. Check out this great video of the Elvis impersonators at Trecco Bay performing ‘Hound Dog’!

A big well done, and thank you, to all of those who ‘Rocked up’ to be a part of the record and also what was a fantastic Elvis themed weekend. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
