Paul Zajac and Station 885 Restaurant broke the world record for the world's largest snow cone previously held by Mammoth Mountain Ski Area in Mammoth Lakes, California. The Snow Cone ended with a weight of 5,714 lbs surpassing the previous record of 4,640 lbs (2.104 tons). The old record was beat at 2:15 pm with the final weight being finished at 4:30 pm. The attempt began at 11:00 am.
Paul Zajac and Station 885 are awaiting verification from The Guiness Book of World Records. The snow cone was constructed with 5,000 lbs of ice and contained 85 gallons of syrup (850 lbs). The new world record was celebrated by giving out over 2,400 free samples of the snow cone to the more than 3,000 spectators present. This attempt corresponded with the Plymouth International Ice Festival.
