Hughes said about 80 volunteers are needed to help pull off Fairfield’s attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for the most false mustaches worn at a public event. Training will be at 5:15 p.m. Monday at the convention center.
Participants will gather at 5:30 p.m. July 26 on the Jefferson County Courthouse lawn. Volunteers will pass out fake mustaches and numbered wristbands. Then, at a specific time, everyone, as a group, will wear their mustaches for a minimum of 5 minutes.
