It's the 75th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz, and that means the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids will be hosting their annual festival.

Tuesday, June 10 marks the beginning of the celebration, which will continue through Sunday, June 15. The exhibit includes 3,000 items related to the movie, including the carriage that brought Dorothy and her friends to the Emerald City.

And on Friday night at 5:30 a Guinness World Record may be broken for the most fully costumed Wizard of Oz characters in one place for five minutes.
