While the rest of us were celebrating by eating, partying, and spending time with family, the residents of Elmira, New York had other plans for their St. Patrick's Day. This year, the people of the upstate New York town set out to break the Guinness World Record for "Largest Human Shamrock". a record that was previously held by 815 people in Dublin, Ireland. In order to beat the record, the people of Elmira did not only have to include more participants than ever before, but hold the position perfectly for five minutes - and that's exactly what they did! On March 17, 2019, 1,200 people from the city of Elmira, New York officially beat the Guinness World Record for "Largest Human Shamrock!" - although the official confirmation of the record will not be released by Guinness for a few weeks. The people of Elmira were thrilled with this achievement and the power of their tight community, stating that it "puts Elmira on the map again." Congratulations Elmira, we see you!
