Record Breaking Weekend for Grants Pass

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Grants Pass tourism officials are preparing the downtown area to break a record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Right now, another city outside the United States holds the record for most flower baskets displayed in the city limits at one time. Thursday, committee members delivered the baskets to local businesses. Each of the businesses sold or bought baskets of flowers for $10 a piece.

Part of the funding from those sales goes to the Josephine County Master Gardeners program. The current record to beat is 2,968. On Saturday, Grants Pass businesses will display 3,000 baskets.
