In celebrating Canada Day this year, the Township of Wilmot will attempt to break a world record for the most people wearing a red paper crown in one place.
The annual Canada Day celebrations will be held in New Hamburg's Norm S. Hill Park and includes agricultural displays, live music, an area for children to play, vendors market and fireworks.
The world record attempt will take place at 7 p.m. at the park.
Angie Hallman is a committee member and said they spent hours researching the best, inclusive attempt they could make.
This one was perfect, she said.
"Infants can come participate, anyone can come and participate," she told CBC News.
It allows everyone to, "show our Canadian pride. Show our community pride. And it's as simple as, you can officially be a world-record holder by wearing a red paper crown, sitting on a lawn chair. It doesn't get any easier than that," Hallman said.
The Wilmot Canada 150 committee announced the world record attempt Friday afternoon.
The current record is 1,324 people who wore paper crowns at the Sathya Diabetic Centre in Tamilnadu, India, on July 22, 2014.
