People in Staunton spent Sunday evening laughing for world peace. Shanti Om Yoga and Staunton Parks and Rec hosted the Third Annual World Laughter Day in Gypsy Hill Park.
The celebration included musical guests, magicians, fire hula hoopers and holistic vendors. Not only was the goal to get people laughing, but also to learn how to live healthier.
"We need something that focuses on our own community because ultimately that's where our first peace comes from," explained Laughter Day organizer Linda Revis. "We build on the peace in our community and we take it out into the world."
World Laughter Day started in India in 1998 as a way to build friendships and encourage world peace. The movement now includes 6,000 laughter clubs in 65 countries.
The last event in Staunton was people gathering in a peace sign formation and laughing for no reason.
