Come down to Glendale and break a world record! Today the city is celebrating its 17th Annual “Cruise Night”; in conjunction with K-EARTH 101 from 5:30pm-10:30pm on Brand Blvd.

Chubby Checker will be performing live, and the city's goal is to break the world's record for the most people dancing The Twist. The current record is 1,691 which was set in April 2004. Glendale should have no problem topping that, since Cruise Night has been purported to attract 35,000 visitors in past years.

Over 450 pre-1979 classic cars and trucks will be on display. The Road Kings heavily represent with their famed collection. Cherry and restored Woodies, Thunderbirds and other popular classics will be on hand for close-up viewing. In addition, the cars from Starsky and Hutch, 1-Adam-12, Back to the Future, and many more famous rides will be on display.

Parking tip: approach parking structures and lots from Glendale Boulevard, Brand will be blocked. If you want to participate in the world record, you should arrive around 7:15pm tonight. Check out instructions after the jump.
