HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES HOLD PARADE AND BREAK RECORD
High school graduates from Skopje and other Macedonian towns, together with about 24,000 counterparts from over 40 European cities, danced Friday "The Quadrille" of Strauss opera "The Bat". The manifestation is part of project "High School Graduates Parade", organized in Macedonia, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Serbia.
"I believe this day will remain long in your memory, because you are at the beginning of a new part in your lives. I wish you happiness and success. You have the chance to put Macedonia in the Guinness Book of Records through the Quadrille", said Skopje Mayor Trifun Kostovski in the opening address.
EU Ambassador to Macedonia Ervan Fouere saluted the high school graduates in Macedonian and Albanian languages, wishing them a merry life, just like Strauss' dance.
"I am certain that you - the youth - will bring Macedonia into the European Union very soon", he added.
According to organizers, the Guinness Record was been toppled by over 500 more pupils who danced, in comparison to last year's record of 23,628.
MD: Congratulations to them all! And nice they broke the record!:)
