120 Foot Long Banana Split to Break Maine Record Sunday in Saco
The best news of all is after it's constructed - we get to eat it!
Saco Main Street is going for the Maine record of the longest banana split. The current record holder is The Woods at Canco in Portland with a 60-foot long banana split set back in 2019. Saco wants to DOUBLE that for 120 feet of authentic banana splitness.
Saco's Mayor William Doyle will be measuring it and Governor Janet Mills will be sending a proclamation to make it official! There will be about 180 banana splits to eat afterward, so anyone who comes will get a FREE banana split after it's measured. Oh, and it will be a true banana split!
