MONTREAL - Several thousand people gathered in downtown Montreal today to try to set an unusual record — the most people wearing red clown noses in one place.

But cold, wet weather thwarted hopes of setting a new Guinness World Record.

The event was organized by Nez pour Vivre, a group aimed at raising money to help 18-to-30 year olds fighting cancer.

It featured performances by several Quebec musicians.

An official from Guinness World Records was on hand for the occasion.

The target was 17,000 people — more than the number gathered at an event in Australia in 2011.
