Welcome Meatball Fans!
The Record for World's Largest Meatball now lives in Columbus, Ohio!

Oct. 7, 2010 Meatball Update
The cooking team has packed the giant sphere with the raw meatball mixture and placed in the oven in our attempt to break the Guinness record for World’s Largest Meatball. We’re pumped and ready to go, and would like to express our extreme gratitude to all of our Sponsors — especially Cashland and Hathaway & Ferguson.
Just so everyone is aware, the meatball will not be available for public consumption at the Italian Festival. We’re working with several area organizations to determine the best method for distributing the meatball after it has been judged.
Results of whether the world record has been achieved will be announced when the center of the meatball reaches 160 degrees. The official ceremony is scheduled to take place at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 9. Stop by and witness history in the making including balloons, face painting, and picture opportunities… Hope to see you there!
