According to the Democrat and Chronicle, 1,200 people there donned green ponchos and formed a massive human shamrock Sunday morning. The crowd easily broke the previous Guinness World Record, besting an 851-person human shamrock in Ireland.

Here's how it worked: Participants gathered in Eldridge Park near an outline of a large shamrock. Organizers then gave each participant a numbered wristband and a poncho. After participants took their places inside the outline, they stood for five minutes.
