Beijing, Feb 7: China has created a Guinness record for the world’s longest parade float of 791.5 meters.
The new record made in Gutian county of Fujian province, broke the earlier record for the world’s longest parade float of 204.53 meters set in Taiwan in 2011.
The adjudicator, Cheng Dong, presented the Guinness World Record certificate to the organizer chairman of a council for the Hua clan, Hua Tiande.
Hua said his group started to make the dragon float last week, Xinhua reports.
The dragon’s head was two meters high and had a red ball in its mouth.
The dragon float was accompanied by a band playing drums and gongs.
Hua said he hoped the Guinness record would help boost the traditional art, and make the county more attractive to tourists. (ANI)
