Participants wait to learn if event broke caroling record

Christmas in July

(AP) – Singers have completed an attempt in Frankenmuth to break the Guinness World Record for the most people singing Christmas carols.

Organizers tell The Saginaw News that results of Saturday’s “Christmas in July” event are expected to be released Sunday.

They would have had to sing carols at 10 or more homes on at least two separate streets.

The current record was set in 2013 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, when more than 1,800 people sang carols in unison

Family Life Radio, St. Lorenz Church and School, Tri-Star Bank and Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth teamed up for the record-setting try.

Participants alternately sang “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night” as they went from home to home.

Residents had to listen at their doors for it to count toward the record.
