WORLD'S LARGEST BONFIRE
MADE OF PALLETS - NORWAY
On and around the 24th of June every year, you will find the people in Alesund, Norway stacking pallets. This unique and seemingly dangerous tradition is how the people of this city celebrate midsummer. Sankthans, or ‘Midsummer’, is a festival held every year on June 24th in commemoration of John the Baptist’s birth. The day is celebrated in Scandinavian countries and other parts of Europe. These people risk their health, and even their lives to help assemble The craziest bonfire stack I have ever seen. Check out the pictures of what happens when they get done stacking pallets. They stack them until it reaches an astonishing 130 feet high.
Clancy's comment: Extraordinary, but very dangerous.
