SAN ANTONIO – Did you know that San Antonio holds the record for the most tamales made in a 12- hour period?
On Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2011, the San Antonio Independent School District's Lanier High School assembled the largest Tamalada -- an event where family and friends get together to make tamales -- in San Antonio's modern history.
The group while being monitored by Guinness World Records officials, made 17,106 tamales weighing in at 2,420.9 pounds!
That's a whole lotta tamales.
It took 1,100 students and 200 neighborhood volunteers to make this impossible dream possible.
At the end of the record-setting event, all of the tamales were donated to Haven for Hope.
The event was certified as a world record in April 2012.
