Looks like a flaming hot world record

Flames lit up the night sky in Byron Bay on Saturday night as 102 people converged on the Arts Factory to set a new Guinness world record attempt for the most people fire twirling.

Arts Factory administration assistant Angie Hickey said a minimum of 100 people were needed to set the record.

“We had 102 fire twirlers, so it would seem that we have set a new record,” she said.

“We just have to compile all the evidence including the photos and video footage and send it off to claim the record.”

Ms Hickey said a huge crowd had watched the fire twirling attempt which was part of the Arts Factory’s open day.

“It’s was really spectacular,” she said.

The open day also featured live music, property and brewery tours, a bush tucker walk, Reiki and massages, yoga, a talent show and more.
