All are welcome to participate in “One Voice,” an attempt by Fairfield County residents to set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most number of people singing Christmas carols at the same time, door to door.
Caroling begins on Wednesday, December 12 at 7 p.m. at Compo Beach in Westport, CT and follows a predetermined, non-strenuous half-mile route. Over 250 people are needed to sing and complete the route if a new record is to be set.
The Guinness Book of World Records adheres to strict criteria to ensure the legitimacy of its records. An official representative will be on hand on December 12 to adjudicate and, if successful, declare the new record.
Sorry - no walk-ups can count towards the record - you must register on-line. Entrance fees are $10 for adults and $5 for children aged 6-12 years old. Participants will receive a 'runners' bib with their official number as their keepsake.
Conducted by members of the Unitarian Church in Westport, “One Voice,” event will benefit the Lily Sarah Grace Fund which supports the arts in underfunded elementary schools across America. Lily, Sarah and Grace are three young sisters who tragically lost their lives when their Stamford home burnt to the ground on December 25, 2011. The Lily Sarah Grace Fund was established by their father, Matthew Badger, in their memory. For more information on the charity, please visit: www.lilysarahgracefund.org.
