Madison is busy this week. The Reebok Crossfit Games started Wednesday, and Wednesday night, the record was set with one of our state's favorite foods with the World’s Largest Cheese Board!
It took place at Concerts on the Square, where Wisconsin Cheese achieved the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Cheese Board. It was verified that the 4,437 pounds and 9.92 ounces of cheese made it the largest cheese board ever, and there were over 300 varieties on there!
Tons of people enjoyed samples of the cheeses; I got there too late to be one of the first 2,000 attendees... they all got personally curated to-go cheeseboards.
The remaining cheese from the event was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank. See more about it on the Wisconsin Cheese Facebook page or their Twitter page, @WisconsinCheese.
