SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Shreveport Aquarium recently found out its attempt to smash the world record for the longest Mexican wave line during the Mardi Gras parades in February failed.

The spokesperson for the Shreveport Aquarium, Jake Wood says the attempts fell short of breaking the current record but added they would be trying again. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record is from 2007, with 8,453 people participating.

The aquarium made two separate attempts before both the Centaur Mardi Gras Parade on February 18 and the Gemini Mardi Gras Parade on February 25.

The goal was to involve all the people along Clyde Fant Parkway who were waiting along the route from the Sci-Port museum all the way to the turn onto Shreveport Barksdale Highway.
