Salsa dancers gather to break world record

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Salsa dancers set out to break the world record for the most salsa dancers at one time on Fountain Square Thursday.

They needed 600 couples to beat the previous record.

There is no word at this time if they broke the record. Officials say they will have the final results Friday.

The event was the final "Salsa on the Square" event, which had been held on Fountain Square throughout the summer. The event also kicks off the 5th annual Hispanic Heritage Month in the city of Cincinnati.
