Guinness World Records Day is less than one month away! Over 50,000 people are already expected to take part in this annual international event, from the world's largest martial arts display in Yongnian County, China, to the largest gathering of leprechauns in Dublin, Ireland.
"You don't have to be a stuntman or daredevil to take part in Guinness World Records Day - anyone with a record-worthy party trick or talent can join in the fun," says Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief of Guinness World Records. "That's the point of the day - to celebrate the joy of record-breaking and have a go at that record you've always wanted to attempt. And if we help raise a lot of money for charity along the way, so much the better!"
