In a bid to enter Limca Book of Records, more than 8,000 men and women on Tuesday dressed in traditional attire from across the district danced on the tunes of local music at town's Dhalpur ground for one and a half hour.

Chief minister Virbhadra Singh flagged off the event at Lal Chand Prarthi Kala Kendra Kullu from where the participants rushed towards Dhalpur ground by giving message to 'Save the girl child' to display the Kullvi folk culture.

The CM also administered oath to people to not kill female child.

Meanwhile, the number people registered for the event was 8,760 participants but participants were more than that, in which 98% were women.

When more than eight thousand people gathered in the ground in traditional Dhatu and Pattu, it gave a unique look to the event. Prominent local singers the district Ramesh Thakur, Thakur Das Rathi, Dharamender Sharma and few others sang Kullvi songs.

Sonia, Pari, Reshma and few other participants told HT that they were feeling happy to be a part of this event that was going to set a record at an international level.
