Toronto, Ontario, Canada – July 14, 2003 – Citizens of Toronto and participants of the Corso Italia Toronto Fiesta, shattered the Guinness World Record for the longest spaghetti noodle ever made!

metres or 503 feet), were monitored under the strict guidelines provided by the Guinness World Record association. Community spirit reigned supreme, even as a five-minute downpour threatened to dampen the attempts of determined Corso Italia Toronto Fiesta volunteers.

New World Record
Approximately 300 volunteers worked carefully and patiently for hours, weathering every possible crisis to achieve their lofty goal. Credit is due to everyone who participated in this tremendous team effort, including Cora Scire, head of pasta-making at the Tre Mari Bakery, Eden Trattoria (the restaurant which cooked up the noodle for all excited and hungry residents and passerby), the young children of the J.J. Piccinini Community Centre, the Business Improvement Association: Jeff Guillan – Chairman, and Cino CucchiVice-Chairman, and the co-producers of the Corso Italia Toronto Fiesta, Fernando Valladares and Lido Chilelli.

Cutting the Spaghetti Celebration
Residents of the St. Clair Avenue West neighbourhood and visitors savoured a piece of history when they visited Eden Trattoria to eat the celebrated noodle. While the world-class super spaghetti was free, donations to the Hospital for Sick Children were gratefully accepted.

Come witness and another record breaking festival in 2007.

Buon Appetito!
