RIVERSIDE, Calif. — While employees and guests alike will be wearing onesie pajamas, there will be no sleeping on the job at Castle Park on Saturday, March 29th. Castle Park hopes to set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Gathering of People Wearing One Piece Pajamas” with Duke’s Pajama Party. Currently, the record to beat is 752 standing participants clothed in onesie pajamas set by Henry Allen Onesie Angels (UK) at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire UK in November 2013.
Castle Park will offer admission into the park, unlimited rides and mini-golf, entrance to the Pajama Party, and a ticket for the raffle to those who pay the $9.99 admission fee and wear their onesie pajamas. The raffle is planned to take place at 4:00 p.m., and prizes will include ride passes, 90-day passes, and a family four-pack of season passes to Castle Park.
Duke’s Pajama Party is not only an attempt to break a World Record, but is an attempt to make a difference by supporting the non-profit charity, the “Pajama Program.” The Pajama Program provides new sleepwear and nurturing books for children in need, many of whom are awaiting adoption. For every pair of new pajamas donated, Castle Park will give the guest one free ticket to return to the park. Jale Beliveau, Director of the Pajama Program says, “When donating pajamas, please remember that pajama donations should be new, and a complete set (top and bottom), and please remember the teenagers, too.”
Radio stations, KFROG, KOLA and KGGI will be at the park to help take donations, as well as ensure good and fun entertainment for attendees. KFROG and KOLA have teamed up to assist the front gate from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., taking Pajama Program donations in exchange for free park tickets. KGGI will simultaneously be on the Dragon Tower Stage from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., where they will be announcing the pajama contest winners, raffle winners, and hosting the official count of guests wearing onesie pajamas.
Web Undies has partnered with Duke’s Pajama Party, at Castle Park, to offer a discount on pajamas for those who will be participating or donating. A 15% discount on all footies will be available via www.webundies.com with the promotional code: CastlePark2014.
