Oranmore residents will attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the greatest number of people wearing high visibility vests in any one place, in a campaign to encourage pedestrians and cyclists to wear high visibility clothing when walking or cycling on the roads.
Titled ‘Hi-Five 4 Hi-Vis’, the world record attempt will take place in Oranmore at the all weather pitch at 3pm on Saturday, 27 October.
The event is supported by the Garda Síochána and the Road Safety Authority, who will also be distributing hi-visibility vests to all participants.
The organisers have planned a ‘Safety Festival’ to coincide with the Guinness World Record attempt, featuring exhibitions and demonstrations from the Civil Defence, the Defence Forces, and the National Ambulance Service.
The Hi-Five 4 Hi-Vis Safety Festival commences at 1.30pm and the Guinness World Record attempt takes place at 3pm.
