GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — LaughFest is asking for the community’s help to break another Guinness World Record.
This year’s attempt will take place Thursday, March 5 at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids.
LaughFest organizers hope to break the world record for the largest number of people wearing paper crowns.
The current record holder for the largest number of people wearing paper crowns is held by participants at the Sathya Diabetic Centre, at Kanchipuram in Tamilnadu, India.

There will be hand warmers and hot chocolate for those who participate in the world record breaking attempt.
The evening will wrap up with a free comedy preview show at the Pyramid Scheme at 10 p.m.
