AVON -- They did it!

A total of 340 participants at this year's Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival set a Guinness World Record for "The Most People Modeling in a Duck Tape Fashion Show."

Every "model" created his or her own outfit, which had to consist of one article of clothing and one accessory made entirely from duct tape.

Duct tape fashions included everything from suit jackets and skirts to hair bows and shoes.

An official Guinness World Records adjudicator was on-site to verify the record.

Each participant who rocked the runway received an official Guinness World Records medallion and was entered in a drawing to win a $500 gift card.

Avon is the "Duct Tape Capital of the World" and home of Duck Brand duct tape.

The Avon Heritage Duck Tape Festival is an annual Father's Day weekend celebration of all things duct tape.

This year's theme is "Out of This World" and runs Friday through Sunday at Veterans Memorial Park, located at 3701 Veterans Memorial Parkway.
