JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville helped break a Guinness World Record on Saturday. 

Dillard's at the St. Johns Town Center helped earn the title of "the most people applying sunscreen at the same time."

The community gathered around 10 a.m. to apply sunscreen for two minutes to break the record. 

More than 300 people came out to participate, Dillard's told News4Jax. Multiple Dillard's locations around Florida participated in the event, altogether helping break the current record.
