SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — The San Jose Earthquakes are attempting to break a world record Sunday, with the largest number of people to participate in a groundbreaking ceremony.

In order to break the Guinness World Record, participants will need to dig, using a commemorative shovel, or one of their own.

Over 5,500 people had registered to participate by Friday morning.

The current record of 4,532 was set in 2007 in Jaipur, India.

More information on the attempt is available at the San Jose Earthquakes website.
