LaughFest Supporters Wear Sunglasses at Night; Set World Record

Townsquare Media

Gilda’s LaughFest began on Thursday with a world record setting event at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids.

Hundreds gathered to wear sunglasses at night then shared their fun on Twitter.

Records were made to be broken and LaughFest broke one Thursday.

It was a close call, but LaughFest fans broke the record on the second attempt.

WZZM 13 reports:

Guinness World Records says the current mark was set in July 2012 by 1,642 people at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. LaughFest spokesman Tyler Lecceadone says the group’s count shows that 1,675 people wore sunglasses Thursday night.
