Grants Pass Hopes to Break Record

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — The city of Grants Pass is hoping to break into the Guinness Book of World Records, for the most hanging flower baskets.

The current record is 2,968, and organizers want to put up 3,000 of them. The whole city is pitching in to help, including Josephine County and Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce, the Towne Center Association, and the city’s downtown services.

They are selling baskets for $10 a piece to businesses and residents. On May 11th, five separate camera crews will head out to every location to count and document each one.
