The longest lunch in the world

When citizens of Lychun, China said they were having a long lunch they were not kidding, assembling a dining table that stretch 6,000 feet. The banquet was part of the local tradition and customs of the Hani people and is supposed to bring good luck. 1,860 tables were used in order to seat some 10,000 diners.

An organiser of the event said: ‘It is our tradition to celebrate the harvest by gathering together for a meal. The length of the meal determines our luck for the next harvest, like the length of a dragon in a dragon dance.’

The lengthy lunch was not long enough to secure a world record however, with the biggest ever banquet stretching some 12,000ft.
