AHH! Tuscon has a Gnome Fest?! How did we just hear about this now?!
They’re trying to set the Guinness World Record of largest number of people dressed as garden gnomes. What an awesome record!
At least 479 people need to dress up this Saturday at the 2nd Annual Tucson Gnome Fest. The current record holder is the UK (damn those Brits) with 478 people dressed up as gnomes at the Foyer of Malvern Theaters in Worcester.
There’s supposed to be a beard competition (ya’ll goin’ down), food trucks (yum), drawing contests (ya’ll goin’ down again), and lots of other awesomeness.
A whole bunch of bands are playing too so check out the lineup on the Metro Gnome Music page.
If you can’t find your old gnome costume in the back of your closet, they’ll sell you a hat for 5 bucks. Don’t worry….2 of those bucks go to the Humane Society….because gnomes are cool like that.
This article is how we found out about the event!
