Everything is bigger in Texas and to prove it there will be a triple threat of Guinness World Record attempts on Saturday, March 4 headlining the inaugural Spirit of Texas Festival in College Station. 

More than 5,000 pounds of the Texas State food cooked up in a custom 14-foot wide, 4-foot deep pot. It is the Brazos Valley’s attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest serving of chili, which is now held by North Dakota. Sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records, a Guinness Adjudicator will be onsite.
