Science North is bringing the Science of Guinness World Records exhibit to the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre.
The exhibit allows participants to go behind the scenes and see what it takes to be a Guinness World Record title holder.
"It's a very interactive exhibit. It's not too labour intensive, but it definitely gets you moving. You can even compete with friends, foes, classmates, other visitors et cetera," says Helena Devins with Tourism Kenora.
Beyond the challenges, visitors will be drawn in by inspirational stories that will be showcased throughout the exhibition. By presenting real facts and stories, the exhibition will give visitors an understanding of their body and how it reacts, focuses, and endures when attempting to break a record.
Devins says that this exhibit is fitting, as in 2019, Q104 and Tourism Kenora broke the record of the most people wearing plaid. The previous record was set at 1,146, and on July 27, 2019 the record was broke as 1,359 people gathered on the Harbourfront wearing their Kenora Dinner Jackets.
"We always love partnering with Science North and Q104. It was great to have our 'Plaidurday" a couple of years to beat that record and to now have the Science of Guinness World Records to come to the Discovery Centre," she added.
The exhibit is free to attend and runs September 3 - October 14 from 9:00am - 4:00pm seven days a week.
