AVON, Ohio (June 14, 2014) – Duck Tape® successfully completed its mission to set a Guinness World Records® record during this year’s Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival, an annual Father’s Day weekend celebration of all things duct tape held in the Duck Tape® Capital of the World and home of Duck® brand duct tape – Avon, Ohio.

A total of 340 participants decked out in Duck Tape® – everything from shirts and skirts to accessories and more – helped officially establish the record for “The Most People Modeling in a Duck Tape® Fashion Show.” To qualify, each participant created and wore an outfit consisting of at least one article of clothing and one accessory made from Duck Tape®, such as a Duck Tape® dress and hair bow or Duck Tape® pants and shoes.

Each participant who rocked the runway received an official Guinness World Records® medallion and was entered in a drawing to win a $500 gift card. An official Guinness World Records® adjudicator was on-site to oversee and confirm the record attempt.
