   Largest Rocking Chair-world record set by Dan and Carolyn Sanazaro

  CUBA, MO, USA -- The steel 42’1” tall and 20’3” wide, weighing in at 27,500 pounds, rocking chair that took its place on Route 66, adjacent to The Fanning Outpost General Store owned by Dan and Carolyn Sanazaro sets the world record for the Largest Rocking Chair.

   Photo: The Route 66 Rocking Chair is a focal point for travelers and locals alike and appears in the photographs of car clubs, motorcycles groups, family photos, and brings smiles to the faces of those who tilt their heads to take in its height. (enlarge photo)

Owners of the Largest Rocking Chair, Dan and Carolyn Sanazaro, built the chair adjacent to The Fanning Outpost General Store to prompt travelers to stop and visit their complex of businesses: an archery range, a taxidermy shop, and a general store with lodge style décor, convenience items, and Route 66 mementos.

   The businesses center around a renovated Fanning, MO community building with a history as both a bar and a voting center at different times.

   Dan Sanazaro, thought the Route 66 location, four miles west of Cuba, MO (pop.3500), in Fanning, MO, needed something special to attract folks to his fledgling businesses that opened in what some might call an out-of-the-way rural setting.

   On April 4, 2009, a JOG, Inc., a local running club plans a 4-mile Race to The Rocker to benefit the local high school track program.

   During the Christmas season, the rocker made a striking light display and was an area “must see.” Last year, the local fire department used their bucket lift to raise groups of people high in the air to the chair for pictures.
    The daylong event saw grandparents, babies, and families, sometimes with the family pet, take their place on the rocker for their once of a lifetime photos.

The store has its own World’s Largest Rocking Chair candy bar.
