That's what happened Saturday at Stearns Park Beach as the city broke the world record for the most sand angels made simultaneously with 1,387 sand angels - crushing the previous record of 352 set by Pembrokeshire, England in 2015.
"We weren't looking to break it, we were looking to shatter it and I think it's mission accomplished," said Petersen director of Spectrum Hospital foundation, volunteers and community services.
"We were embarking on a really bold goal and we did it." Ludington shatters sand angel world record at Lake Michigan beach "That touches a lot of hearts," Petersen said.
"A lot of people are unfortunately impacted by (cancer), and to feel like you can come and be a part of such a positive event for such a devastating disease, I think we saw that really shine today." "It's exciting to be a part of and see the community come together," said former Ludington native Candace Nordine, who participated in the event.
