World’s tallest bonfire burns to ground in Norway

The world’s tallest bonfire was set ablaze on Saturday night in a town on the west coast of Norway. The annual Norwegian tradition of burning the Slinningsbalet, or the Slinning Bonfire, involves the creation and burning of many pallets, crates and barrels in Alesund. At 156 feet tall, the wooden tower was built on an artificial island and lit around dusk. It’s known as the St. John’s Eve Bonfire in Norway.

The video of the burning bonfire was also posted on Facebook which are now goes viral. The tower beat the previous record-holder by 14 feet, which was in Slovenia.
