Balboa Park sets Guinness World Record for largest puppet show

BALBOA PARK (KUSI) — The San Diego Zoo is celebrating 100 years since the park began with a roar, turning to Balboa Park to host the centennial celebration. Making it a memory to not soon be forgotten, more than 500 people helped set a new Guinness World Record Saturday night. Balboa Park is now home to the largest hand puppet show ever, more than doubling the previous record. 

The large crowd gathered with lion puppets on their hands, proving to be kings of not only the jungle, but the record books. 

Balboa Park hosted a huge assortment of events, ranging from concerts to arts and crafts as both the park and zoo enjoy their 100th birthdays.
