The official record is 424 people because those were the folks in the pre-determined sections -- 314 and 315 -- who would have had sun showing on them if not for the cloudy conditions.
"The minimum requirement was 250," said Danny Girton Jr., senior corporate adjudicator manager for Guinness World Record. "So that was easily surpassed. An unofficial 30,000 plus wore them as well."
The promotion was tied to Tuesday, June 21 -- the longest day of the year.
