An Australian city has officially captured the Guinness World Record for the most people gathered on a beach to make sand angels at the same time: 1,624 people. That’s a lot of sand angels!

Setup by a radio station in Australia, The City of Gold Coast said in a Facebook post on 14 April 2020 that it has received confirmation from Guinness that the Nov. 22, 2019, event at Kurrowa Beach broke the previous world record of 1,387 people flopping about in the sand to make angel shapes at the same time.

The previous record for most people making sand angels simultaneously was set in 2017 in Ludington, Mich.

The Gold Coast event raised nearly $20,000 for Drought Angels, a charity benefiting farmers during difficult times.

What do you think, should we attempt to break this record once the COVID-19 pandemic is over?
