 MACY'S TAPS ITS WAY INTO THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS


-- GOOFY TO LEAD 'THE GOOF TROOP GALLOP' AT MACY'S TAP-O-MANIA --
 NEW YORK, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of tap dancing enthusiasts of all ages will take to the street on Sunday, Aug. 23rd as part of Macy's 14th annual toe-tapping extravaganza, Tap-O-Mania. Celebrating "The Year of Goofy," this year's event will be led by Disney's slapstick superstar, Goofy, and his 11 year-old son, Max, stars of Disney's new afternoon animated series, "Goof Troop." Macy's will, once again, attempt to surpass its own previously set World Record. In 1991, a total of 5,622 tappers gathered to claim the world title of the Largest Assembly of Tap Dancers to Dance in a Single Routine.
 Registration of the over 6,000 expected participants begins at 8:00 a.m. at Nelson Tower (on the corner of Seventh Avenue and 34th Street). Tap captains begin rehearsals immediately with groups of 50 tappers, and continue until 11:30 a.m. Then, at precisely 12 noon, the greatest number of dancers ever assembled will tap their way down 34th Street and into the Guinness Book of World Records. Goofy and Max will lead with a new foot-stomping routine. "The Goof Troop Gallop," as the classic Disney hit, "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," will be heard through the crowd.
 Above the record-breaking crowd will be a giant cold air inflatable balloon of Goofy and Max. The colossal characters measure 30 feet high, and Goofy alone boasts a size 7 shoe (seven feet, that is!), with floppy ears six feet in length.
 The first 6,000 participants to register will receive free, official Macy's Tap-O-Mama tee-shirts and Goofy hats. In addition, one lucky tapper will win a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort via Delta Airlines. Listen for all the details on 95.5 WPLJ, the official radio station for Tap-O-Mania. For registration information, call Macy's Tap- O-Mania Hotline at (212) 560-4495.
 Join Goofy, Max and thousands of others at this year's Tap-O-Mania, and be a part of history in the making!!
