Here's a fun fact to usher you in to your holiday weekend: Ohio currently holds the Guinness World Record
for largest pumpkin pie ever made.
The record-placing dessert was made in 2010 by a team of giant pumpkin growers in New Bremen, OH (about an hour north of Dayton), who constructed a 3,699 pound, 20-foot diameter pie.
The crew used 440 sheets of dough, as well as a boatload of canned pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice, and baked it in a custom pie pan before divvying it up into approximately 5,000 slices for hungry community members.

The previous Guinness World Record pie weighed 2,020 and was 12-feet in diameter.
