On Saturday, fans of Nintendo's Kirby character will come together to attempt to break the Guinness World Records for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously.

This attempt will be made from 2-3 p.m. at the PAX Prime Conference, which will be at the Washington State Convention Center at 800 Convention Place in Seattle, in the Expo Hall Queue Area on Level 4, Room 4A. Check-in time is 1 p.m.

In addition to trying to break the standing record of 304 people blowing bubble gum, participants will also get the chance to win prizes including "Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition." The event will help commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Kirby franchise and celebrate the upcoming Sept. 16 launch of "Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition" for Wii.

For two decades, the pink hero known as Kirby has been inhaling his way through Dream Land. While he may be pink, round and adorable, he's also a warrior who defeats his enemies by inhaling objects and spitting them back out with incredible force, making him one of the most recognizable gave characters in the world.

"Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition" features six games from the Kirby franchise on one disc, plus additional challenge stages, a commemorative booklet, a music CD and an interactive timeline that allows players to explore Kirby's history.
