PORTLAND, Ore. - Can Portland break the record for the largest gathering of people wearing sombreros?

We'll find out this weekend at the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in downtown Portland.

Sombrero-wearing folks are planning to gather at the waterfront on Saturday to see if they can break the previous record of 500. Organizers hope to get at least 800 people participating.

If you'd like to join in, you can bring your own sombrero or grab one of the ones that will be handed out. The world record attempt will be at 6 p.m.
