Guinness World Record set in Bobcaygeon


KAWARTHA LAKES-The Lakeview Arts Barn (LAB) is a Guinness World Record holder for the world’s largest underpants.

They recieved the certificate acknowledging the feat on Wednesday. “We did it! Just received the official certificate from Guinness World Records acknowledging our world’s biggest knickers!” the owners said.

It all started with a play they produced called ‘Knickers!’ which was written in Bobcaygeon a few years ago and since been produced at theatres around the world. When the owners decided to put Knickers on again last year they came up with the idea to promote the show.

The knickers are 70ft wide by 40ft high and that just happens to be the same size as the side of our building tha houses LAB. The owners hung them on the building and had patrons enter the theatre through the legs.

Kawartha Lakes Councillor Kathleen Seymour-Fagan was the certified witness for the attempt and Glen Wilcox from Wilcox Architects was responsible for the official measurements. Local resident Debbie Poole had the arduous task of sewing the giant knickers.

Congratulations to all involved.
