A crowd of people gathered in Millennium Park Sunday afternoon to break a world record. invited people of all ages to rock a bow tie. Organizers were trying to break the Guinness World Record for the most bow ties tied at the same time by a group.

They chose Sunday because it's National Bow Tie Day. donated $15 to Goodwill for each person who took part. They're still waiting for the official confirmation, but organizers tell us they broke the record.
