Most People Dressed as Pirates in One Place set Guinness world Record 2010

A pirate festival in California hopes to have set a world record for the most people dressed as pirates in one place – with over 2,000 pirates coming together for a vast pirate-off.

The attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most costumed pirates in one place took place on Saturday, when nearly 2,300 pirates registered at the fourth annual Northern California Pirate Festival in Vallejo.

Festival spokesperson Shannon Damnavits said that each pirate had to wear a red wristband, stand in one place for 10 minutes and be photographed in order for Guinness to officially recognize the pirate conglomeration.

The current title world record holder is England’s own Brixham, where a gathering of 1,722 pirates was recorded.
