RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — This weekend you get a shot to help break a Guinness Book record, at the 21st Earth Day Richmond Festival, down at the 17th Farmer’s Market.

The Enrichmond Foundation has partnered with a bunch of businesses and organizations to try and break the Guinness World Record for the largest recyclable structure on Earth made from aluminum cans.
