Yoko Ono will celebrate John Lennon's 75th birthday with the largest ever human peace sign at New York's Central Park.
Ono hopes to convene between 6,000 and 10,000 people at the park’s East Meadow and arrange participants into a peace sign before an aerial photograph is taken at 12:30 p.m. If enough people attend, the tribute will break the Guinness World Record of 5,814 people.
Ono announced the event outside New York’s city hall on Thursday, where a group of city officials and children held a Lennon sing-along. In the month leading up to Lennon’s birthday, the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus,” a nonprofit mobile audio and video recording facility, will be stationed at different locations across the city for educational programs.
