Hyderabad breaks record for sky lanterns

Hyderabad has entered into the Guinness Book of Records for having the largest number of paper lanterns in the air at one time.

The city broke the record by setting free 12,000 lanterns on Sunday March 25th 2012 after a few false starts.

While the releasing of the lanterns was the main event, a number of other smaller side shows were also staged to entertain the people who attended, including a sand art display and a performance by a band.

Although the number of lanterns was enough to break the record and seal Hyderabad's place as the holder of the title, the number was still down on the 30,000 lanterns that had originally been planned for the display.
