The small prairie town of Dundurn, Saskatchewan is looking to break a not-so prehistoric record on Canada Day. Big Mur's Tavern has invited 600+ people to attempt break the Guinness Book of World record for most Inflatable dinosaur costumes in one place.
Gary Grady said he was inspired after learning the current, and oddly specific, Guinness world record was set last summer in Portland, Oregon. The current world record sits at 380.
Everyone who attends will receive an official Guinness certificate, according to Grady, and the attempt to break the record will be documented via aerial photos and a headcount.
Grady says it's been a lifelong dream to break a world record and believes this might be his moment.
"It's just a personal thing of mine. When I grew up as a kid, my parents always bought me the Guinness Book of World Records for Christmas and I always wanted to somehow be part of it."
Grady is asking anyone who plans on participating to call Big Mur's to register in advance.
The event starts at 5pm on Saturday July 1st, 2023 on Main Street in Dundurn, Saskatchewan.
The Big Mur's Tavern and Grill has even offered to feed anyone who shows up in costume for the world record attempt set for July 1 with over 600 people pre-registered, there may be a lot of hungry dinosaurs taking Grady up on his offer of a free burger and a drink.
