Mich. city creates big salad bar in record attempt

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (AP) — A West Michigan city celebrated its agricultural heritage with an oversized salad bar.

Locally grown lettuce, cabbage, radishes and the like were on the table Saturday as folks in Hudsonville made a play for the record book.

Organizers were trying to set a Guinness World Records mark for the longest continuous salad bar.

Guinness says the current record was set by a 660-foot, 4,548-pound salad bar in South Africa in 2002.

Hudsonville’s world-record attempt was part of the Saladbowl Bash, which included live entertainment and vendor booths.
