YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – On Saturday, October 28 — as part of the Youngstown State homecoming — an event is being put together to break the world-record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Penguins.
The record is 624, set in 2015 at a children’s hospital in England.
It’ll happen between 9-10:30 a.m. at the Watts Center. The event is being organized by Dr. Stephen Hanzely, a former YSU professor of physics and astronomy.
Everyone has to be physically present in the same room for five minutes to break the record.
A thousand people have already signed up. The Penguins costumes will be provided.
