 Largest Human Smiley Face - Baltimore sets world record

  BALTIMORE, MD, USA -- For 11 minutes and 32 seconds, 261 people stood at the Maryland Science Center plaza to form an orange and black smiley face to help kick off Visit Baltimore's new summer campaign, "Find Your Happy Place in Baltimore" and to set the new world record for the Largest Human Smiley Face.

   "Baltimore makes us happy everyday, and we think the world's largest smiley face is the perfect symbol to kick off our summer travel season," commented Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore.

   "No matter what makes you smile, we encourage travelers from all over the country to come and find their happy place in Baltimore this summer."

   Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake spoke to the crowd beforehand, saying "once we resolve this deficit, I will find my happy place" and that "tourism is vital to the economic health of our city." She also praised the Baltimore Grand Prix, the city's newest attraction.

   Maryland was one of just five states to see an increase in tourism last year as the recession kept vacationing Americans closer to home.

   According to the study by Context-Based Research, people are going back to basics and embracing life's simpler things that make them smile and laugh spending quality time with loved ones, traveling, among others.

    Visit Baltimore is capitalizing on this national trend with a comprehensive program that promotes those places and things in Baltimore that are certain to make visitors happy.
