Spend the weekend Breaking a Guinness Record in Hallmark Channels' Hometown Christmas Town.



Have you ever wanted to hold a Guinness Record for something amazing? Or how about jumping into your favorite Hallmark Christmas movie to enjoy the Christmas festivities? This coming weekend you can do both in Portsmouth, Ohio.


Last year was the first year for Winterfest in Portsmouth, Ohio and it made such an impact that the Hallmark Channel has labeled Portsmouth as its "2019 Official Hallmark Channels' Hometown Christmas Town". As part of this designation Hallmark will be providing wrapping paper for a Guinness Record Breaking Attempt for the Most People Wrapping a Present Simultaneously. The record attempt will take place December 14th at 3:00PM on Market Square in Portsmouth, OH. This will be the 3rd Guinness Record attempted in Portsmouth. The first two attempts were successful, "Most People Potting a Plant Simultaneously" and "Most People Christmas Caroling", and you can help break this 3rd record.


I can't think of a better Christmas gift to give to the family than a lifetime of knowing

"We broke a Guinness Record."
