GILLETTE (AP) — A city of Gillette attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the most sparklers lighted simultaneously.

Organizers were hoping for about 2,000 people to participate in Saturday night's effort. The current mark of 1,713 was set in August 2018 in the Japanese city of Takarazuka.

Jessica Seders, executive director of Gillette Main Street, told the Gillette News Record she believes the effort was record-breaking.

When the count is complete, photos and video will be submitted to Guinness for a determination.
