World record for lights in State College
for ice lanterns frozen with knowledge.
Up and down Allen Street,
see the lights, ain’t it sweet.
A record, will Guinness acknowledge?
The number of ice luminaries made by community members show State College broke the world record that was set in 2013 by Vuollerim, Sweden with 2,561 ice luminaries. The town in Sweden is located only 10 miles south of the Arctic Circle and has about 700 inhabitants, so that record was quite remarkable. John Stitzinger, a founder of The Make Space in downtown State College announced the total, 5,622., at the Light Up State College event Saturday night.
Way to go, State College. Go Penn State!!
