Mary Poppins Umbrella World Records

On Saturday 7 May 2011, SHYAC's Mary Poppins Committee organised a successful attempt on the Guinness World Record for the Largest Umbrella Mosaic (previously 1,026) when 2115 people with umbrellas swarmed onto Bradman Oval to create a gigantic image of Mary Poppins. That effort was followed up straight afterwards with another successful world record when 1,216 people participated in the Largest Umbrella Dance to the tune of the Hokey Pokey.

If you were part of those record attempts - congratulations and thanks!

WORLD RECORDS HIT FOR SIX ON BRADMAN OVAL

We did it! In one of the most magical days anyone is likely to experience, 2115 umbrellas were raised for 10 minutes to form the biggest ever umbrella mosaic.
This was followed by a 5 minute dance (the Hokey Pokey) in an successful attempt on the Largest Umbrella Dance record.

With at least three helicopters overhead (incl Nine & Ten TV News and
Peter Clisdell from the Berrima Aero Club), the world was watching the NSW southern highlands town of Bowral welcome Mary Poppins back to her spiritual birthplace around 100 years ago.

Here is the photographic proof!

An estimated 500 stayed or returned for the outdoor cinema screening of Disney's 1964 movie Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews and Dick van Dyke. And many more turned up for the spectacular fireworks display sponsored by Mittagong McDonalds and Tourism Southern Highlands. 

Congratulations to everyone involved!
