It’s time to dust off your grass skirt and coconut bra.

The Old Town School of Folk Music is seeking to break a Guinness World Record on Saturday for the largest number of people assembled to play ukulele in one place.

They need more than 1,378 people to meet at Welles Park (2333 W. Sunnyside Ave) at 2:30 p.m. to strum along to a traditional Hawaiian song and attempt to break the record.

Don't worry if you don't know how to play -- participants of all ages and all levels will be taught to play a traditional Hawaiian song called "E Huli Ma-kou."

The only catch is that this party is BYOU -- bring your own ukulele.

And you'll definitely need to provide your own grass skirt.
