Photos from the Conservancy’s 2018 record breaking attempt

In 2018, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy made its first attempt and won the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the “Longest line of garden flamingos”, setting up 1,500 “FLOmingos” in Buffalo’s Bidwell Parkway. However, in 2019, Pledge the Pink of Callawassie Island, SC, earned the current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title with more than 3,300 garden flamingos. We hope you will join us in reclaiming our world record title in 2022!
