You have a chance to help Mobile break a Guinness World Record for the most elves in one place this Friday. If you want to participate, you must wear red and green clothing, an elf hat and of course pointy ears.
The holiday event will kick off in Bienville Square at 5 p.m. Following the count of heads, the elves will march down Dauphin to Cathedral Square behind the Murphy High School Band.
Currently Bangkok, Thailand holds the record at 1,762 elves in one place.
“Third time is the charm,” said Mayor Stimpson. “This is our year to prove to the world that we boast the largest population of elves. I encourage all of our citizens to take part, and even take it one step further, and reach out to everyone you know. It’s time to free elf from the shelf!”
