SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viejas Casino & Resort set two new Guinness World Records today – for World’s Longest Sparkler Relay and World’s Longest Chain of Fireworks.
During a VIP party this evening for Viejas’ 23rd anniversary, 299 people gathered around the pool at Viejas Hotel and handed off sparkler flames from one person to another, setting a Guinness World Record for Longest Sparkler Relay. The final sparkler lit a fuse that set off a spectacular chain of over 10,000 fireworks, setting a new Guinness World Record for Longest Chain of Fireworks.
