Hundreds of redheads might have gathered at ginger pride rallies and record attempts in other cities but where else is more appropriate than Orange?

Rachael Brooking is planning to start big – with a Guinness World Records attempt on getting the most redheads in one place.

The red-letter day is September 30 when a four hour festival of all things red will be celebrated at Wade Park – culminating in the attempt to better the current record which stands at 1672.

GINGER CHEER: Orange will be seeking to achieve all the fun of this Ginger Pride event in Melbourne when it hosts a Guinness World Record Attempt for the most redheads.

Mrs Brooking said it would raise money for research into Huntington’s disease which claimed her mother Frances Kelly, also a redhead.

She said she had just launched the festival and was still working on getting famous redheads and sponsors to attend.

“I’ve had a really good response so far,” she said.

GINGER MEGGS: There will be plenty of character on Orange's red-letter day.
