Watch: Global Village sets new world record with 'Happiness Street'


Global Village celebrated International Happiness Day on Saturday night in style.

The multicultural family destination's famous landmarks were lit in Yellow to mark the occasion and smiley faces adorned both the largest underwater screen and the iconic Wheel of the World while happy guests enjoyed the evening.

To add to the celebrations, Global Village announced an honorary name-change of Kiosk Street through another successful Guinness World Record attempt.

With the most spectacular international street food options in the region, Kiosk Street has long since been called Happiness Street by loyal guests, so Global Village decided to make it official on this year’s International Happiness Day. 

The new street sign is made up of over three thousand smiley-faced pin badges forming the words 'Happiness Street'. 

This insta-worthy street sign is officially the "Largest Pin Badge Word" in the world.
