On December 5, 2014, Gatlinburg will attempt to break a Guinness World Record for most red Rudolph noses ever worn at a single event during the 39th Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade.  2014 American Idol winner Caleb Johnson will host the event and be the Grand Marshal of the Parade.  

When the Parade steps off at 7:30 p.m., 20,000 red noses will be distributed to parade-goers who will be asked to wear it simultaneously for five minutes during the parade to break the current world record of 16,092 red noses, set in Australia in 2011. 

“Gatlinburg ‘Nose’ Christmas! This year’s parade will be one for the record books,” says Gatlinburg PR Manager, Marci Claude.  “What is more fun than being counted as one of 20,000 people wearing red Rudolph noses during the parade?  We hope everyone will come out and make history with us!”  - Gatlinburg.com
