The Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of Santa’s elves was achieved on December 8, 2013, in Iasi City, Romania.
A total of 1,073 people turned up at Iasi’s Palas shopping center to break the record.
The previous record was staged in Ammanford Town Centre in the UK, where 762 elves gathered on November 17, 2012.
Most of the participants were high school students between 11 and 18. For their dance performance, they rehearsed more than 180 hours, over a six-week period.
The youngest participant was a four-month old baby.
The costumes were worked on for about three months and over three kilometers of fabric were used. Claire Burgess, the official representative of Guinness World Records, confirmed the record.
