A Gingerfest 2013
Yesterday I joined 1600 red head haired people from all over to break the Guinness Book of records. The event took place at the Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland. I've never seen so many different shades of red in my life. For it to be official, we all had to been counted. So they roped off the center portion of the square, made a gate and then we filed in as they counted. Then once everyone was inside the square, we had to stay in the middle for ten minutes. We did it. We broke the record held by Breda, Netherlands last year with 1200 redheads. It qualify to be counted, participants had to bring a childhood picture showing they are truly a natural redhead. Here I am at age three.
