Grand Rapids, Mich. (WZZM)-- LaughFestis once again attempting to break another Guinness World Recordduring its kickoff event.

This year, LaughFest organizers want to break the world's record for the largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches. The event will be Thursday, March 7 at Rosa Parks Circle. People are encouraged to gather at 5:30 pm with the official attempt to break the Guinness World Record at 6:30 pm.

You may recall past record breaking kick-offs for LaughFest. In 2011, 925 rubber chickens were tossed. And in 2012, 607 people danced the chicken dance while wearing chicken masks.
