Two of the stars of the upcoming motion picture Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days– the “Wimpy Kid” himself, Zachary Gordon, and Robert Capron, who portrays Rowley – will join author Jeff Kinney, who penned the phenomenally successful books upon which the film is based, and the baseball team the Trenton Thunder, to set the world record for the largest Camping Read-Along. The event will take place on July 27, 2012, at Mercer County Waterfront Park in Trenton, NJ at 10:30PM.
In addition to making camping and reading history, the Wimpy Kid team will throw out the first pitch with baseball’s only "bat dogs" – Chase and Derby.
"We are thrilled to bring Hollywood to New Jersey, with the appearance of author Jeff Kinney and stars Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron here on July 27," stated Eric Lipsman, Senior Vice President, Trenton Thunder. "I'm sure our fans that have read the books and seen the first two movies will be very excited to meet them in person and participate in our post-game outfield camp-out/sleepover… as we attempt to set the record for the Largest Camp Read Along."
The film hits theaters on Aug. 3.
