Montreal for the 2009 Dabke record in Guinness Book on June 20th 2009

Take part in making history! Come help Tollab - the Lebanese students' federation in Montreal - in one of the biggest record breaking events of 2009!
It is within the framework of the annual Lebanese festival in Montreal (held on June 19th, 20th and 21st 2009) that Tollab, in collaboration with MAESTRO travel, aims at setting up a new record for the longest dabke chain ever assembled; an accomplishment that will enter the famous Guinness book of records after being approved by its official representative.
The Federation's goal is to gather 3500 people at the Marcelin-Wilson Park on the 20th of June, and invite them to dance the Dabke for at least 5 minutes. This event will provide Montreal an international exposure that will highlight its multicultural face, hence uniting all Lebanese and Montrealers of all colors, religions, names or cultures.
The event will take place at 7:30 pm on June 20th 2009 at the Marcelin-Wilson Park, which is located on 11301 boul. de l`Acadie in Montreal, Quebec.

If you would like to participate, there's no registration beforehand, so you only need show up for the event.
For more information, you can visit the event's official facebook page here, or contact Tollab at


  1. Thanks Liliane!! ;)
    Boukra we'll see two chains competing (one March 8th and another March 14th)

  2. lol rabih

    kodder, what exactly is your case, coz I discussed with you the matter, and I honestly still don't get what your point is. Because all I felt you were trying to say is that Lebanese excel outside of Lebanon than in Lebanon, and that people who remain in Lebanon are retards, that Lebanon will never get better because only the retards remain, keep voting for the same people etc.. That all this makes you hate Lebanon, but it's because you actually care.
    However, what I don't get, ok w ba3den? Are you trying to tell people to leave Lebanon? or just that Lebanese who are not expatriats are retards, or... you just wanna diss people?

  3. I just want to diss you

  4. lol walla you made me laugh :P

  5. well, good...I guess...

  6. I understand where kodder comes from. But lilz you are right; it's cause kodder cares.

    Well, I'll speak for myself. When I dedicate several long posts lambasting Lebanon, and when I spend effort, time and words to express my disapproval, anger or annoyance at anything Lebanon related, it's definitely because I am frustrated, I have experienced a better life abroad but also because somewhere very deep down, I care about Lebanon. I care about it and about the people who make up Lebanon.

    No people should not have it in their minds to leave Lebanon. At least not for an unidentified period of time. They could leave to pursue life abroad but they should not forget a country that has accommodated them, a country whose water and food they consumed, whose life they lived. It's about loyalty. And I am loyal to Lebanon, to Africa, and to the 4 years I spent in London.

  7. YEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY I am in Montreal at this time and am going wouhouuuu and am bringing all my friends yeyyyyyyy I will participate in it woouuuuhouuuuu :)))))
