More than 100 people put their right hands in and put their right hands out at John Walsh Park in an attempt to break a Guinness world record for the most people dancing the hokey pokey in one place. On Sunday, the 17th annual East Northport Festival ended its weekend-long activities along Larkfield Road with the hokey pokey dance.
