Breaking World Records

Funtastic Traveling Shows Carnival broke a standing World Record! During Cinco de Mayo weekend, Ron Burback’s group hosted an event in Portland, OR where they had 1,008 sombreros at one event. Their goal was to have 800 people to beat the previous Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of People Wearing Sombreros, which only totaled 500.

The event was sponsored by Acceso Sin Fronteras and held on the Waterfront. Hats were handed out for free and guests were asked to stand in the food court for 10 minutes while the volunteers counted the hats. You can see more photos here.

Congratulations to Funtastic Traveling Shows Carnival, Ron Burback, and Acceso Sin Fronteras. Hats off to you.
