The previous record was owned by Singapore when 10,568 participants set the Guinness World Record for the largest lantern parade. But on September 8, during the city’s second Tanglawan Festival, residents of San Jose del Monte City broke that record.

More than 21,000 participants walked a pre-assigned route around the city holding lighted lanterns fashioned from soft drink cans. Despite the rain, participants finished the route in their attempt to set a new world record.
