Since the Shreveport Aquarium announced it's arrival to downtown Shreveport, they've made a big splash. However, they're attempting the biggest splash yet this weekend at the Krewe of Centaur parade.

The Shreveport Aquarium is slated to open it's doors this summer, after what's sure to be a jaw-dropping renovation of the Barnwell Center on the Riverfront. The city is buzzing with excitement at just the thought of having our own, state of the art aquarium. Now, the excited new attraction is partnering with the people of Shreveport to break a world record!

Of course, somewhere around 200,000 people will be lined up from downtown to the duck pond this weekend for the Krewe of Centaur parade. In order to break this world record, the Shreveport Aquarium will need the help of literally 5% of the expected attendance!

They are attempting to break the world record of longest Mexican wave line. They'll break the record with 8,453 "wavers" and with the attendance expected this weekend, they should demolish it. A Mexican wave line is pretty much the stadium wave without the stadium, and the wavers must be in as straight of a line as possible.

They are looking for volunteers to help make the attempt legitimate, if interested, click HERE.

The good news it, if they somehow fall short the first try, they'll get another chance next weekend at the Krewe of Gemini Parade.
