Guinness World Records™ Attempt: Ugly Sweaters

https://www.facebook.com/beaconparkdetroit/photos/gm.1757863877851781/651424588580737/?type=3&theater

Be a part of a Guinness World Records™ attempt at Beacon Park for the largest gathering of (ugly) holiday sweaters! Presented by UglyChristmasSweater.com, the attempt will aim to break the current record of 3,473!

Directly following the record attempt, the 10,000 sq. ft. heated Winter Lodge tent will play host to one of Beacon Park’s most wildly popular events – the silent disco!

Participants dressed in (ugly) holiday sweaters will be asked to convene at Beacon Park on the corner of Cass and Grand River at 6:30 p.m. for the official Guinness World Records™ count. UglyChristmasSweater.com will be on site selling an assortment of holiday sweaters to anyone needing approved* attire.

Following the count, partygoers donning headphones and holiday sweaters will dance the night away from 7 p.m. to midnight while DJs from iHeart Detroit radio stations Channel 955, WJLB and WNIC will simultaneously spin three genres of music on separate channels.

Food and drink will be available for purchase from a number of Detroit’s favorite food trucks and bars on site. Park visitors will also be able to enjoy festive holiday lighting, outdoor fire pits and two interactive light installations, making their U.S. debut from Montreal.

*Note: Approved sweaters must clearly display Christmas or Hanukkah themes – all green or all red sweaters won’t count!
