World Record Gathering of Elves

World Record Gathering of Elves

 

Saturday 10th December - 2pm Adare Street, Bridgend
Ever seen the streets full of Christmas elves? No?
Then join us at the Bridgend Elf-steddfod where once again we will attempt to beat the world record of elves gathering in one place at one time!
Last year we topped 900 elves. This year we are hoping to reach at least 1000! The day will be filled with elf activity and give you a chance to be a world record holder.
If you have an elf costume, fantastic! If not, and you still want to join in the fun, put on something red or green and we will supply you with a hat! Prizes will be given to the best dressed elves!
