World’s Largest Tamale
History was made yesterday in California: Sacramento Eats Up "World's Largest Tamale".
It's 42 feet long, weighs 1,200 pounds -- and it's helping the fight against drugs and alcohol in the Sacramento area.
The "world's largest tamale" was the centerpiece of the 5th Annual Tamales Festival Sunday at Sacramento's Cesar Chavez Park, billed as Sacramento's biggest Mexican independence celebration.
Organizers began assembling the mammoth meal at 5:30 a.m. Sunday. Once it was heated and ready, representatives of Sacramento service group Clean & Sober began selling off portions of the giant tamale to hungry festival goers.
Just wait until next year:
The cooks behind the tamale said they intended to be back again next year -- this time, to cook a 43-foot tamale
Here's a review from someone who attended:
Me and myt wife went to the tamale festival if that is what you want to call it. We waited in line for almost an hour before giving up on trying to eat food. From what we saw the seven dollar price tag for one tamale was not worth it anyway. The tamales were very tiny. There were only two mexican food stands to accomidate all the hungry people.
The headliner of the event Fankie J performed for a brief minute just before the event ended. All in all this was exactly $2.50 worth of an event. I wont be back next year. I wish I would have went to the airshow. This was a waste of time and money. Very disapointed. But what should have I expected with the price of addmission!
