World's Longest Balloon Chain
Made in One Hour

     On March 3, 2005, Eisenhower Junior High School set a new world record: The World's Longest Balloon Chain Made in One Hour.
     To establish the record for the World's Longest Balloon Chain Made in One Hour, twenty people (18 students and two adults) blew up over 1,200 balloons which they then linked together to construct a chain that measured 708 feet long. The rules for this record stated that "Twenty participants must blow up balloons and link them together within one hour. All balloons must be intertwined and must be uniformly visible, countable and measurable at all times. The length of the balloons must be determined by using a precise method of measurement." EJH new record for the World's Longest Ballon Chain Made in One Hour was officially accepted by the The Book of Alternative Records in Leipzig, Germany, on March 24, 2005.
