UPDATED: Gilda's LaughFest Loses Mustache Record

The Guinness world record for the largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches has reportedly moved on from Grand Rapids.

A group called RAGBRAI claims more than 2,000 people participated in an event Friday in Fairfield, Iowa, topping the Grand Rapids total of 1,532 people wearing a false mustache earlier this year at Gilda's LaughFest.

Gilda's Club and Fairfield's Cirque de Fairfield leaders placed a bet on the outcome. Since Fairfield broke the Grand Rapids record, officials at Gilda's will have to send Fairfield a basket of goods and be photographed in Fairfield attire. Had Grand Rapids kept the record, a basket of things from that community would have been on its way to West Michigan.
