  The Guinness world record for the longest tamale was set by El Chico Cafe in Jackson, Tennessee in 2006. It was 51 feet 9 inches long.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most pizzas made in 24 hours by a team: 6,838, achieved by Domino's Pizza #8209 and owners Bob and Tina Leikam (all USA) in Taft, California, USA.

  Lanier High School's culinary arts classes took the lead in making the ingredients for the tamales and banking and finance magnet students developed a business plan that included tallying the weight of the final product.

  Ten AmeriCorps members from Denver volunteered for the event. "It was really great to be a part of this," said AmeriCorps member Nathalie Besse. "From pre-k kids to high school and older community members, everyone was here to work toward this great goal. We were glad to be a part of it."

  Sponsors include: HEB, the SAISD Foundation ,SAISD, Alamo Federal Credit Union, Lanierites, Linegarger, Goggan, Blair and Sampson LLP, State Farm, Joaquin and Julian Castro, Olga Hernanez, Patti Radle, Michael Soto and Celina Pena.

  "I have lived in the Lanier community for 42 years and I know it to be a very culturally vibrant community. If any community has the strength—la fuerza—to set a record for the biggest tamalada, it's this one," San Antonio Independent School District District 5 Trustee Patti Radle said.

  Donors include: Acemart Restaurant Supply, AZTECA corn Husks, Linda's Mexican Restaurant, Don Juan's Restaurant, Fernandez Produce, Inner City Development, Matera Paper, Mi Tierra Restaurant, and PICARINGA.

  Some students made tamales for the first time. The more experienced tamal-makers carefully guided young and old in making pork and bean tamales.
  
  "It's the bringing of people together that makes a tamalada, a tamalada," San Antonio Independent School District 5 Trustee Patti Radle said during an assembly."
