The World’s Largest Shamrock

Most of us spent St. Patrick’s day enjoying green beer, potatoes and cabbage, or maybe Chef Erin’s Green Velvet Cheesecake at Krafty Draft. ¬†But the residents of Elmira, NY spent Sunday setting a new Guinness world record.
Exactly 1,200 people gathered to form the world’s largest ‘human shamrock’, which involved wearing green panchos and standing in a shamrock formation, complete with three leaves and a stem. ¬†
In order to break the previous record of 815 people, they had to hold the formation for 5 minutes. ¬†Participants were excited for the chance to make history, with one saying the stunt “puts Elmira on the map again”.
