Everyone has at least one pair of mismatched socks, and Gilda's LaughFest wants everyone to show them off on March 7 as they attempt to break the world record attempt of the "Largest Gathering of People Wearing Mismatched Socks."

In order to break the record, the event needs to attract at least 1,000 people. The current largest gathering of people wearing mismatched socks consists of 933 participants, achieved by Tailgating Against Cancer (USA) at Coulter Grove Intermediate School, Maryville, Tennessee, in April 2018.

Interested in participating? Here are the rules:

· Socks must come from two different pairs and must be significantly different – any person wearing socks deemed too similar must be disqualified from the attempt.

· A single pair of socks cannot be individually altered to make them different (i.e., no drawing, sewing or any other additions/or subtractions to or from a sock for differentiation will be permitted).

· Socks need to be physically seen easily (not obscured by clothing) so individuals must wear them outside their clothing or wear shorts, skirt, etc.

The record attempt will start at 1:30 p.m. at Studio Park, with the actual attempt beginning at 3 p.m. at last five minutes.

It's free to attend, but those interested in taking part should arrive by 2:45.

LaughFest will take place March 5-15.
