Penticton Mayor Garry Litke, Laura Hunt of Global Spectrum and Penticton Vees head coach and general manager Fred Harbinson encourage the public to come to the South Okanagan Events Centre today at 5:55 p.m. to attempt a Guinness world record for most simultaneous high five’s.

The goal is to break the current record of 4,699 set earlier this year in the U.S. The event is a celebration of the fifth anniversary of the SOEC and the home opener of the Vees at 7 p.m. against the Merritt Centennials.
