Eaton sent this in a few days ago. You may remember a few posts ago, the 1997 successful world record attempt at the worlds largest burrito. But that was then, and that record has been broken! May 8th. 1999 was the date that the official "worlds largest burrito" was made! Ole!

When was the last time you enjoyed a great lunch wich made history, had music and good fun under the sun, plus gave to charity? It probably has not been anytime soon. Well, here is your chance to do just that. Casa Chapala Mexican Restaurant has come up with the idea to make the World's Largest Burrito with the help of other local businesses and sponsors, right here in our own Columbia Park. We are looking to beat the current Largest Burrito Record by 500 feet. As you can see, we need your help as this will be beneficial to local charities. Cinco de Mayo Committee, MECHA, United Way and the St. Joseph's New Church Project.

The original story had quite a few photos, so I thought I'd do a bit of photo filtering for you all, and show what I think are the best ones out of the lot.

Remember though, you can get the full photo album here!
