The 12,740 Lantern Release in Romania Lights up the Sky

The 12,740 lantern release in Romania was a stunning sight as thousands of people gathered to break the Guinness World Record.

Sky lanterns were released by a participating crowd of 30,000 people. The video footage makes the event look like a sight out of Harry Potter, and the crowd gathering in a hum of festivity made the impressive stunt all the more magical. Since this was organized by the Palas multi-functional center that only just opened, the lanterns all donned the 'Palas' logo. Alas, it was not solely a great show, but also a wide-reaching publicity effort.

Although I cannot imagine how detrimental this stunt is to the environment and overhead flying birds, it was an admirable spectacle that touched people all over the city.
