Two of the giant beach balls, officially measuring 36 feet in diameter as determined by a professional surveyor, were dropped from the tops of buildings and into a crowd of more than 2,500 people. At approximately 1 p.m., Guinness adjudicator Danny Girton, Jr. officially announced that the record had been set.
