HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) - An attempt to set a dancing record at the annual Tulip Time festival has fallen short.

Organizers say around 1,700 people turned out Thursday evening at Centennial Park in the Michigan city of Holland. They wanted to set the record for the largest number of people dancing simultaneously in wooden shoes.

The city of Holland is known for its Dutch heritage. The Holland Sentinel reports participants didn’t match another city’s existing record of more than 2,600.

Bethany Christian Services, an adoption support agency, coordinated the event as a fundraiser. The Grand Rapids Press reports that around $30,000 was raised for post-adoption services.

The organization was successful in breaking a record in 2013 by producing a 609-pound cinnamon roll.
