GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The popular comedy event LaughFest kicks off Thursday morning in Grand Rapids, with a massive amount of events planned for the community to enjoy…and participate in.

In addition to early shows and exhibits in downtown Grand Rapids, there is an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Largest Group of People Wearing False Mustaches.

According to LaughFest’s official website, here’s what’s planned:

“The largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches was achieved by 648 participants at an event organized by the St. Louis Rams in September 2012.  Individuals wishing to help break this existing record at the LaughFest 2013 opening night will be provided with an official LaughFest mustache. Here’s the run down for the night:

5:30 p.m., mustache lineup begins near Rosa Parks Circle

6:15 p.m., world record practice and preliminary instructions

6:30 p.m., official attempt to break the existing world record”

LaughFest is a benefit for Gilda’s Club.
