On Saturday, the Oregon Live reported that a new Guinness World Record was established. An estimated crowd of 1,600 redheads gathered in downtown Portland to break the previous record of 1,255 redheads had gathered in Breda Netherlands. The record is for the most redheads to appear in the same place.
Participants had arrived from all over Oregon to claim their share of the record. Participants were required to produce a color photograph of themselves as a child with natural red hair. It will take a few months for the Guinness group to confirm the record.
Regardless, that’s a lot of fair skinned Gingers to simultaneously appear in the same location.
The event also served as a fundraiser for the Skin Cancer Foundation, which redheads and fair skinned people are at risk for.
