June 22 (UPI) -- Tourism officials in a southern Florida county announced they gathered 1,093 people to break the Guinness World Record for largest human image of a seashell.
The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel in Lee County announced the record was broken Thursday at Fort Myers Beach to celebrate National Seashell Day.
"We did it! Today's event was spectacular and it encouraged members of our community to come together to tell our shelling story in a fun and engaging way," said Tamara Pigott, executive director of the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau. "Our partnership with Guinness strengthens the global spotlight on our destination's seashells, which continue to be a major draw for visitors."
