Santa's Elves World Record Gathering at Siam Paragon in Bangkok




A new Guiness Book of World Records entry was made at Siam Paragon yesterday when over 1,700 little helpers gathered to break the previous record of 1,110 set in the UK.

Forming a sea of green and red, and complete with oversized plastic ears and festive hats, the group of mainly schoolchildren, but with several young adults sprinkled amongst them, stood for a five minute spell in the Parc Paragon forecourt while officials carried out an inspection.

Even allowing for several disqualifications for not wearing the required ears or hat, the gathering easily outranked the previous record, set at Stockled Park in Wetherby in 2013.
