In celebration of National Public Gardens Day Friday, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is looking for more than 700 volunteers to help break the world record for the "Largest Tree Hug."

The current record is held by the Forest Commission in the United Kingdom's Delamere Forest, where 702 people gathered to hug trees in Sept. 2011.

Those interested in participating in the event are asked to arrive at 11:30 a.m. The record-breaking attempt will take place over the noon hour at the Shade Tree Exhibit on Three-Mile Drive. Admission is free for all visitors.

FOX 9 predicts temperatures will be in the mid-60s with mostly sunny skies Friday.
