A group of people in Atlanta will try once again to beat the Guinness World Record for "largest gathering of people dressed as garden gnomes."
The attempt — hosted by Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons, the group who created the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade — will take place at the Inman Park Festival parade on April 29 at 1:30 p.m.
This will be the ninth annual gathering, according to the Facebook page. The Krewe is trying to beat the record of 478 gnomes, achieved in the U.K. in 2011.
Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons' personal best was in 2016, when 260 people gathered wearing pointy red hats and boots.
The count will take place at the end of the parade. If the record is beaten, participants must stay gathered for at least five minutes.
