Thousands of women donning red bandannas and dark blue overalls gathered in Richmond, California, on Saturday to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as Rosie the Riveter.

RICHMOND (KPIX) — A sea of red, white and blue filled a waterfront pavilion in Richmond Saturday as hundreds of ‘Rosies’ tried to break a world record.

More details have been released regarding the highly-anticipated effort in Richmond this Saturday to recapture the Guinness World Record by gathering at least 5,000 Rosie the Riveter lookalikes at Craneway Pavilion.

At age 94, Betty Reid Soskin is a powerful voice for helping people process history while protecting historic spaces for future generations.

On Aug. 13, Richmond hopes to reclaim the Guinness World Record for largest ever gathering of Rosie the Riveter lookalikes, after a group in Michigan stole the title last year in what has shaped out to be a rather productive friendly rivalry.

RICHMOND -- The city is looking to give new life to its alleyways with a new initiative intended to turn blighted areas into community green space. In partnership with nonprofit groups Pogo Park, the Trust for Public Land and the Watershed Project, in addition to the Iron Triangle Neighborhood Council, the city has completed its first prototype project, the Matthieu Court Alley.

DINNER RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 30

In light of current concerns for everyone’s health and local government recommendations, we have rescheduled our 20th anniversary annual benefit dinner for August 30, 2020. We want to protect our community and especially not jeopardize our Rosies’ health (certainly our super stars of the event!).

I sincerely ask you to buy your tickets today. Rosie the Riveter Trust relies heavily on the funds raised from this annual dinner to keep our programs afloat and our park thriving. Our Board and I look forward to seeing you on August 30 - same time, same place!

My very best,
